Slovenia to hold general election on April 24

Slovenia’s president on Wednesday formally set the country’s parliamentary election for April 24.

The election will serve as a reelection campaign for hard-right Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša, a frequent thorn in the EU’s side. While Janša’s Slovenian Democratic Party currently leads at 24 percent in the polls, according to POLITICO’s Poll of Polls, the center-left, environmentalist Freedom Movement has surged to 20 percent in recent months.

President Borut Pahor announced the election date on Twitter.

Slovenia’s fragmented party landscape means smaller parties could play a critical role by lending their support to a coalition government. Currently, opposition parties are collectively outperforming Janša’s minority government parties in the polls, but potential coalition agreements make the outcome hard to predict.

The election campaign officially starts on March 24.
