In biggest election surprise, Koper faced with mayoral run-off

Koper, 19 November - After more than half of the vote counted, it appears that Boris Popovič, who has had a comfortable run in the Koper mayoral office since 2002, will have to put in additional effort to convince the residents of the largest coastal municipality. In a tight race, his main challenger Aleš Bržan, an independent, managed to force a run-off.
