Slovenia will hold early parliamentary elections on December 04 after its government collapsed earlier this month.

Slovenian President Danilo Turk called the vote after the center-left government of Prime Minister Borut Pahor was ousted in a no-confidence vote held on September 20.

This will be Slovenia's first snap elections since the country declared independence from the former Yugoslavia in 1991.

The government was toppled after months of disagreements between ruling coalition partners and several Cabinet resignations.
