Verjamem (meaning "I believe" in Slovene[1]) is a centre-left[2][3] political party in Slovenia. The party is led by Igor Šoltes, former President of the Court of Auditors.[4][5]

At the 2014 European Parliament election, the party received 10.46% of the vote, winning one of Slovenia's eight seats in the parliament[6] taken by party leader Igor Šoltes, who chose to sit with The Greens–European Free Alliance (Greens/EFA) group as an associated MEP.[7]

The party received 0.78% of the vote in the Slovenian parliamentary election on 13 July 2014, and did not win any seats in parliament.[8]
