Slovenia MPs approve centre-left Marjan Sarec as Prime Minister

LJUBLJANA, Aug 18 (NNN-AGENCIES) -- Slovenian MPs approved centre-left candidate Marjan Sarec for the post of prime minister, putting an end to weeks of political uncertainty after inconclusive elections in June.

Ex-comedian Sarec won the vote by 55 to 31.

His LMS party came second in the June 3 election, but he plans to form a government with four other centre-left parties, which will be supported by the far-left Levica party in parliament.
