Slovenian Election Winner May Fail to Form Coalition, TVS Says

Jan. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Ljubljana Mayor Zoran Jankovic, whose party won Slovenia’s snap election last month, may fail to form a new government after smaller party said it won’t take part in a coalition, TV Slovenija reported, citing Gregor Virant, the head of the smaller party.

The Citizens’ List, which holds eight seats in the 90-member assembly, said “differences in programs” led the party to decide against joining a coalition with Jankovic’s Positive Slovenia, Virant said in an interview with the Slovenian public broadcaster late yesterday.

If Jankovic fails to gather the support of 46 lawmakers in a vote tomorrow, Janez Jansa, whose group came second in the early vote last month, may be nominated as premier-designate, according to TV Slovenija.

President Danilo Turk on Jan. 5 named Jankovic to form a cabinet as the euro region nation struggles with mounting debt and a threat of a credit rating cut.
