LOCAL ELECTIONS 2014

Local elections 2014 will be held on 5th October 2014.

In local elections each person has the right to vote only in their own municipality, so the voting rights are tied to residents of the local community. Aliens with permanent residence in the municipality may also vote, but only actively, meaning that they cannot stand for election as mayor.

More informations about local elections in Slovenia are available HERE.
