>> Slovenians went to the polls on Sunday. In national elections that the anti-immigrant Slovenian Democratic Party, or SDS, is widely tipped to win. But, it's a hugely fragmented vote with the Adriatic countries 1.7 million strong electorate choosing between 25 parties. SDS leader, Janez Janša, acknowledged that forming a government would not be easy.
That's because though SDS has the open support of Hungary's nationalists Prime Minister Victor Orborn, most parties in Slovenia say they'd be reluctant to join a coalition with the center right party. With SDS polling at 24.5 %, it would likely need to ally with at least two other parties to gain a majority in the 90 seat parliament.
The ballot was called in March after center-left Prime Minister Miro Cerar resigned weeks before the scheduled end of his term of office.
