Forming a government after elections that end with a relatively close result in each state's problem, so it was in Slovenia 1996. when the 90 member parliament was divided by half - the 45 mandate was attributed to the former conservative opposition and to the same liberal leftist led by Janez Drnovsek, with the leftist traditionally attributing two mandates chosen by Italians and Hungarians at special elections , the Slovene constitution being the only recognized indigenous minority.

The crisis created by such a pat-position was resolved only after three months, and the resignation was made possible by Ciril Pucko, a puck party representative who moved from the conservative camp to liberalist, and then joined Drnovšek's party. In many cases, this caused exclamation and condemnation, as well as in the Puck's electoral base that chose him as a conservative rather than a liberal.

He was judged to have committed a political release and an unlawful change of legitimate election results, allegedly receiving threats as well, and Drnovsek called his decision with a bold and pragmatic move that made the country more stable.

Unlike the Croatian situation, in Slovenia, after the election, the political process takes place in two phases, which allows the mandator a more confusing situation and more maneuver for negotiations with the parties.

The mandate after the formal consultations with the parties is proposed by the president of the state. Representatives after the constitution of a new parliament are elected secretly by a majority of all votes, and where the matter will start is usually clear before that, when a new parliament speaker is elected, because it shows how the votes of the new parliamentary majority are distributed.

The president of the state in Slovenia has the mandate for the composition of the new government to always give the president of the party who has received the relatively high number of votes and the relatively high parliamentary mandates, which happened to 2004. when the mandate for the new Government Drnovšek, who was then president of the Republic, gave Janez Jansa, a former political right-wing rival.

If the first mandate, which has been ratified by the parliament, fails to provide the majority for its government, this option gets the candidate of another most successful party in the elections. This has happened in Slovenia only once - after the 2011 election. when Zoran Jankovic failed to form a government, and succeeded in the second attempt by Janez Jansa, who at the then President Danilo Tuerku brought the necessary 46 MPs and thus convinced him to give him a mandate.

For Drnovsek, analysts said he was "coated with all fats," and that is why he managed to form three successful mixed governments, whose country ruled for ten years. And pat-situation after parliamentary elections 1996. which threatened with the political crisis and the announcement of new elections, Drnovšek elegantly shuffled and eventually embedded in the post-election coalition government, precisely the Pucka party, which was previously "stolen" by a deputy voice.

Prior to this election, in the first phase of the election, Zmage Jelinčič, the National Party (SNS) coalition, promised that he was in the new government as interior minister, but after turning his mandatory role away from Jelinčič's party, which could politically compromise him, the Alliance and the Government with the Party Party (SLS) of the Friars Podobnik.

For that, the Government later used to say that it was "nervous and time-to-day," because the arrangement with it was very difficult since Marjan Podobnik, then party president, was forced to put up for formal vice-premier.

Because of populist orientation, Podobnik knew how to "leap" from the governmental agreement, so he objected to the compromise on the border with Croatia, while Drnovšek considered it the crown of his foreign policy.

The Coalition of Drnovsek and Podobnik broke up with 2000. six months before the regular elections, because Podobnik returned to the right and denied the support of the Government in a vote of confidence. The government then fell, and a new Government was formed, which was briefly led by Andrej Bajuk, a financial expert from Argentina, of a Slovenian origin.
