On 3 June parliamentary elections were held in Slovenia. The elections were originally expected to be held on 10 June 2018, but after the resignation of Prime Minister Miro Cerar in March 2018, all parties called for snap elections. They were the third consecutive snap elections after 2011 and 2014.
ALDE member parties sum 15% of the vote (15 seats), with SMC, led by Miro Cerar, winning 10% of the vote (10 seats) and Stranka Alenke Bratušek, led by Alenka Bratušek, obtaining 5% (5 seats).
The Slovenian Democratic Party (EPP) topped the poll with 25% of the vote (25 seats). Center-left LMŠ came in second on 12.7% (13 seats), and the Social Democrats (PES) third on just under 10% (10 seats).
ALDE Party President Hans van Baalen MEP commented on the results for Liberals in Slovenia: "Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar has done a great job as leader of his country and party (SMC). With 10% of the vote in the last general elections, together with the 5% of Alenka Bratušek (SAB), liberals can unite to play a strong role in Slovenia, in Europe and in ALDE the coming years!"
