Brdo castle: Slovenian Prime Minister Alenka Bratusek said Saturday she has agreed with coalition partners to resign on Monday to create the conditions for early elections in June.

"We`ve agreed that it would be best for Slovenia if we could hold early elections as soon as possible, that is why I`ll inform on Monday the parliamentary speaker about my resignation," Bratusek told journalists after meeting the heads of the three junior coalition parties.
She said the elections could be held as early as June 22, but added that "that is no longer in the prime minister`s hands."
Bratusek announced her resignation last week after losing the leadership of the ruling Positive Slovenija (PS) against Ljubljana`s mayor Zoran Jankovic.
