President of Slovenia

President of Slovenia

The function of President of the Republic of Slovenia ( _sl. Predsednik Republike Slovenije) was established on 23 December 1991, when the National Assembly of Slovenia passed a new constitution as a result of independence from Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

Although entrusted with limited power by the constitution, in practice the position is mostly ceremonial. Among other things the President is also the Commander-in-Chief of the Slovenian Armed Forces. The President of Slovenia is directly elected by universal adult suffrage once every five years. Any Slovenian citizen can run for President, but can hold only two consecutive terms in office.
