Slovenia’s President Borut Pahor won by far the most votes in the first round of the election on 22 October [47.07%] but failed to secure an outright victory. The former comedian turned mayor Marjan Šarec was the second most voted candidate [24.97%].
A run-off was held on 12 November between the two leading candidates. The incumbent President was re-elected with 52.98% of the votes.
The President of Slovenia is elected using the two-round system; if no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the first round, the top two candidates contest a runoff.
