The final results of the early parliamentary elections are here. All the votes sent by post from abroad have been counted. Votes from abroad have changed the composition of deputy groups coming from the Alenka Bratušek Party, the Left, and the New Slovenia Party.

Despite all the votes from abroad being counted, the results are not yet official as they still need to be confirmed by the National Electoral Commission. The Commission is to confirm the results at its Thursday session. Its report will then be delivered to Slovenia's president Borut Pahor.

Votes from abroad sweep away three in bring in three new deputies
The final result did not bring any changes to the number of deputy seats won by the nine parties elected to parliament. But it did change the composition of three of the deputy groups. Peter Dirnbek will not be among the Left MPS, as it turns out that Primož Siter received more votes in total. In the New Slovenia Party, Martin Mikolič will be replaced by Aleksander Reberšek, while left without a seat in the Party of Alenka Bratušek is Jožef Ribič, and voted in is Andrej Rajh.

SDS receives most votes by post, followed by the Left
Voters that voted by post from abroad in this year's snap election mostly backed the relative winner of the elections, the SDS Democrats, with around 21 percent. The Left is in second place with around 11 percent, and in third are the SD Social Democrats with around 10 percent.

6,829 voters sent their ballots by post. 6,685 of the ballots were valid, while 144 were declared invalid. Most of them, 1,387, chose the SDS. 785 voted for the Left and 719 for the SD Party. Almost ten percent, or 647 voters, chose the SMC Party, and almost eight percent (518 voters) chose the List of Marjan Šarec. In sixth place with seven percent, or 488 votes, is the New Slovenia Party, which is followed by the Pensioners' Party DeSUS with 444 votes, or six percent.

The Party of Alenka Bratušek (210 votes), the SNS Slovenian National Party (187), the Pirate Party (163) and the SLS Slovenian People's Party (106), all received less than 4 percent support. The remaining parties received less than one hundred votes.
