Slovenia held the mayoral run-off on Sunday.

Elections were held in 56 municipalities, with many receiving new mayors.

The biggest surprise came in the coastal city of Koper, where radio host Aleš Bržan appeared to have defeated incumbent Boris Popovič.

In Maribor, businessman Saša Arsenovič convincingly defeated former mayor Franc Kangler after the incumbent.

Nuška Gajšek has become the sole woman mayor surprisingly defeating the former mayor Štefan Čelan in the country's oldest city Ptuj.
