Elections

The Party of Slovenian People (Stranka slovenskega naroda, SSN) is an extra-parliamentary party in Slovenia. In the 2008 legislative election in Slovenia, the party won 0.25% of the popular vote and no seats in the National Assembly. In the early election on 4 December 2011, the party won 0.09% of the vote, thus not gaining any seats in the National Assembly.[1] The party won 0.4% of the vote in the European Parliament election on 25 May 2014, failing to gain any seats.[2]

The party has its roots in the far-right Slovenian National Right party, which was transformed and renamed after its failure in the 1996 parliamentary election.[3] In later years, it was associated with the nationalistic organization Hervardi.[4][5] Andrej Šiško, formerly a prominent member of the ultras grup Viole Maribor and the party's candidate for the 2008 legislative election, was convicted of a murder attempt.[6]
