Robert Golob Forms Slovenia’s New Government
Analysis & Implications of the Country’s New Coalition Government

June 2, 2022
Following April’s parliamentary elections, won by the newly emerged green-centrist Freedom Movement, the Slovenian parliament has approved the country’s new government. The incoming government is led by former state energy executive Robert Golob as Prime Minister and supported by a three-party coalition that enjoys a comfortable majority in the state legislature.

The final restructuring of the Golob Government has been held up by a protest by the former ruling SDS party against changing the government structure, however it looks set to initiate reforms in a number of areas, with serious implications for the corporate sector. Putting the country and its economy on a more progressive track will take priority, while the green and digital transitions will also be significant areas of focus.

Aretera provides further insight into the formation of the new government, the forthcoming restructuring, the likely policy priorities and headline implications for investors.
