Slovenia Edges Closer to Snap Vote as Pahor Sees No Coalition

(Bloomberg) -- Slovenia edged closer to snap elections as President Borut Pahor said there was no majority coalition in sight after parties used up their 30-day period for a first round of talks.

Neither June election winner Janez Jansa, shunned by most other parties for his anti-migrant rhetoric, nor runner-up Marjan Sarec have enough support to rule with majority backing, Pahor told lawmakers on Monday. Under the Slovenian coalition, lawmakers may now give parties more time for talks.
