Euro Vote: Right Celebrates, But Coalition Wins Four Seats

Ljubljana, 7 June - The centre-right celebrated twin success in Sunday's Euro vote, as the Democrats (SDS) topped all parties and New Slovenia (NSi) returned to the scene to claim three seats together. Under fire for its handling of the economic crisis, the ruling SocDems fell short of their general election result, but the coalition still won four seats.
