The 13th Government of Slovenia was elected on 13 September 2018 by the 8th National Assembly. It is the first minority government in the history of Slovenia.

Formation[edit]

After the 3 June 2018 parliamentary elections, Marjan Šarec, leader of LMŠ, began coalition talks with SD, SMC, SAB and DeSUS. Shortly after that New Slovenia (NSi) joined the talks in order to become the sixth coalition party and ensure a parliamentary majority of at least 46 votes. The newly elected National Assembly held its first session on 22 June 2018 and that meant the first round of the election of Prime Minister began. NSi withdrew from coalition talks on 16 July, close to the expiration of the first round, which meant that for the first time in history there will be no candidate for Prime Minister in the first round of election.[1][2]

On 27 July 2018, the second round of the election began and parties gathered around Marjan Šarec and LMŠ began talks with The Left, which gradually led to forming a new coalition and government. However, The Left was first negotiating to join the government but later decided to not join it. Membership of the party decided on the internal referendum that the party will support the new government from the opposition.[3][4]

On 8 August 2018 MPs of LMŠ, SD, SMC, SAB and DeSUS submitted the candidature of Marjan Šarec for the 13th Prime Minister of Slovenia. It was unsure at first whether Šarec has enough votes to be elected, since The Left has not decided if it will support his candidature and government by the time candidature was submitted. On 10 August parties of the coalition and The Left initialed an agreement about cooperation which secured Šarec enough votes for election. On 17 August Šarec was elected Prime Minister, and has 15 days to announce candidates for ministers.[5][6]

On 20 August leaders of the coalition parties met to decide which ministries will be led by each party:

Minister Party
Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Food DeSUS
Minister of Culture SD
Minister of Defence DeSUS
Minister of Economic Development and Technology SMC
Minister of Education, Science and Sport SD
Minister of Environment and Spatial Planning SMC
Minister of Finance LMŠ
Minister of Foreign Affairs SMC
Minister of Health LMŠ
Minister of Infrastructre SAB
Minister of Interior LMŠ
Minister of Justice SD
Minister of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities SMC
Minister of Public Administration LMŠ
Minister without portfolio for Slovenian diaspora SAB
Minister without Portfolio responsible for Development, Strategic Projects and Cohesion SAB

On 29 August 2018 Marjan Šarec (LMŠ), Dejan Židan (SD), Miro Cerar (SMC), Alenka Bratušek (SAB) and Karl Erjavec (DeSUS) signed coalition agreement and officially formed new government coalition. It was also announced that list of candidates for minister will be submitted to the National Assembly on Friday, 31 August 2018.[7]

On 4 September 2018 National Assembly began with hearings of 16 candidates of ministers. Hearings took place on 5 and 6 September as well. On 5 September Marjan Šarec announced that he will replace Tugomir Kodelja, candidate for Minister of Public Administration, who was already confirmed by the committee, with another candidate. Rudi Medved was announced candidate on 7 September.

On 13 September 2018 13th Government of the Republic of Slovenia was officially elected with 45 votes in favor.[8]
