The patriot spring continues: Anti-immigration party wins Slovenian election

The right-wing Slovenian Democratic party (SDS) of Janez Janša, has won Slovenia’s election. With 99.9% of votes counted, the party received 25% of support.

With 12% of the vote, the LMS party of Marjan Šarec, came in second. Other parties, like the Modern Centre party and the Social Democrats received around 9% of the votes.

Janez Janša can be seen as an ally of Hungary’s succesful Prime Minister, Viktor Orban. During the Slovenian election Janša referred several times to Orban and said:

“Thanks to its [migration]policy, Hungary is a safe country while Belgium, due to its wrong policy, isn’t.”

Orban himself said about Janša and his party that an SDS victory “would ensure the survival of the Slovenian people”.

Janša’s victory is a continuation of the patriot spring, as Dutch MP Geert Wilders called it in 2016. Brexit, Trump’s win and the election results in Austria, Hungary and Italy show that people are clearly turning against the establishment.
