Green-Centrist Opposition Party Wins Slovenian Parliamentary Elections
Implications of the Upcoming Change of Government in Slovenia for International Businesses

April 26, 2022
The recently formed Freedom Movement, a green-centrist formation led by former state energy executive Robert Golob, scored a decisive victory in the Slovenian parliamentary elections on 24 April, ousting the conservative populist Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) of Prime Minister Janez Janša from office.

Although winning the parliamentary vote by a considerably higher margin than previously suggested by Slovenian pollsters, the Freedom Movement will rely on at least one coalition partner to ensure a governing majority in the Slovenian parliament.

As Golob’s party is now turning to coalition talks, Aretera provides further insight into the aftermath of the parliamentary vote, including implications of political stability, the incoming government, as well as the investment climate.
