Dead heat in Slovenian parliamentary elections

Latest update : 2008-09-22

With 89% of the votes counted in Slovenia's national elections on Sunday, there was no clear winner between the governing Slovenian Democratic Party and the opposition left Social Democrats party.

Slovenia's centre-right ruling Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) and the opposition left Social Democrats party (SD) were neck and neck Sunday, with 89 percent of the votes counted by Slovenia's electoral commission.
   
The SD won 30.46 percent of the vote followed closely by Prime Minister Janez Jansa's SDS with 29.29 percent, according to partial results.
   
If neither of the two parties scores a clear victory from Sunday's vote, the final result will depend on the votes cast by Slovenian citizens abroad, mostly centre-right orientated that, will be published on September 29.
   
A total of 47,761 ballots were sent for voters abroad. At past elections, less than half of them were returned and counted.
   
Initial exit poll results published by private POP TV had given the opposition SD 31.5 percent against 27.7 percent for the governing SDS.
   
Another exit poll, conducted for Slovenian national television, also gave victory to Borut Pahor's SD, with 32.02 percent against 28.04 percent for Jansa's SDS.
