This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Slovenia

At a national level, Slovenia elects a head of state (a president) and a legislature. The president is elected for a five-year term by the people using the Run-Off system. The National Assembly (Državni zbor), Slovenia's parliament, has 90 members each elected for four-year terms. All but two of these are elected using the D'Hondt Method of list proportional representation. The remaining two members are elected by the Italian and Hungarian ethnic minorities using the Borda count.

Slovenia's multi-party system means that any one party is unlikely to gain power alone. Coalition governments must therefore be negotiated and formed.
