LJUBLJANA (Reuters) - Slovenia's center-left Social Democrats (SD), a junior member of the three-party government coalition, said on Friday they would remain in the government despite parliament's sacking of the SD defense minister on Thursday.

The government coalition will thus keep a comfortable majority in parliament with 52 seats out of a total of 90.
