Slovenia: Danilo Türk's Victory

Center-left opposition party candidate Danilo Türk won nearly 70 percent of the vote in Slovenia's presidential election Sunday. Sleeping With Pengovsky notes that “smear campaigns do not work in Slovenia” – because undecided voters cast their votes for the victim. Dr. Filomena writes that the first day after the presidential election “is the first day of the parliamentary election campaign” – and discusses Slovenia's economic and social troubles in the comments section to this post-election post by The Glory of Carniola.


  • Danica

    Congratulations Slovenia for showing your politicians they can NEVER become complacent towards the people that give them a job – you!

    I look forward with interest to your EU Presidency in January.
