Preference votes bring some surprises

Ljubljana, 27 May - More than 80% of the voters who went to the polls in Sunday's EU election in Slovenia used the option of preference voting, which has made two new MEPs leapfrog the candidates higher on the ballot. Interestingly, some of the new MEPs received fewer preference votes than some of the candidates who have failed to get (re-)elected.
