PM-designate Cerar to form new Slovenian government

President names anti-corruption academic, confidence vote soon

19 August, 15:01

    (ANSAmed) - LJUBLJANA, AUGUST 19 - Slovenian president Borut Pahor on Tuesday officially designated Miro Cerar, the head of the party that won the July 13 elections, as prime minister.

    A parliamentary confidence vote on his designation is expected to be held soon, possibly on Friday or Monday. The law professor - who campaigned in the elections as an alternative to the country's long-standing parties, at the head of an anti-corruption party he had founded - was widely expected to be named after last week's consultations at the presidential palace. Negotiations between parties are continuing for the formation of a coalition government. After the center-right party Nova Slovenija's exit and the almost certain inclusion of pensioners party DESUS, the focus is on support for the new government by the Social Democrats and the Alliance of Alenka Bratusek (ZaAB).
