Slovenian newcomer Miro Cerar wins snap vote: Exit poll
Ljubljana: The party of Slovenian political newcomer Miro Cerar, a law professor, won snap elections on Sunday with 36.9 per cent of the vote, exit polls released by private POP TV showed.
The main centre-right Slovenian Democratic Party, whose leader Janez Jansa is serving a two-year prison term for corruption, garnered 19.2 per cent while outgoing prime minister Alenka Bratusek`s party barely entered parliament with 4.7 per cent, the poll said.
"This results are good. Let`s wait for the official ones," Cerar said in a first reaction to the exit poll results, adding that victory would represent "a very big responsibility that will require big efforts from us."
Slovenia`s pensioners` party DESUS came in third with 9.3 per cent, followed by a small extraparliamentary party, United Left, which won a surprising 7.1 percent of the vote.
The first partial official results were expected late today.
