Matej Tonin was re-elected leader of New Slovenia (NSi) for two more years as the multi-day party congress came to a close.
He won nearly 96% of the vote cast by mail. Tonin, the only candidate for the post, thanked the membership for their trust, saying he was proud of the NSi, a mature party that knew how to close ranks in critical moments. Tonin took over in January 2018 from Ljudmila Novak, who resigned after serving as party leader for a decade.
