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.
