General election most likely on 10 June, talks indicate

Ljubljana, 8 March - It is increasingly likely that Slovenian voters will go to the polls to elect new parliament on 10 June as President Borut Pahor and coalition and opposition deputies agreed on Thursday that the second Sunday in June was the most suitable day. It will allow parties to carry out the campaign while not disturbing summer vacations.
