Following the June 2018 parliamentary election, a centre-left minority government-the first in Slovenia's history-led by Marjan Sarec, the prime minister, was voted into parliament in September 2018.

The Economist Intelligence Unit does not expect the five-party coalition to last a full term in office. We expect the government to be fractious and to struggle with implementing a coherent policy programme, given the diverging manifestoes of the coalition members.

For the first time since independence, the government ran budget surpluses in 2018-19. Domestic politics are limiting the scope of reforms aimed at lowering the tax burden on individuals, meaning that budgets are likely to record small surpluses or be balanced.
