Early elections in Slovenia set for December

Slovenia's president has dissolved the parliament and called early elections following the government collapse earlier this month.

Danilo Turk said Wednesday that Slovenia's first snap election since gaining independence in 1991 will be held Dec. 4.

Turk called the vote after the center-left government was ousted in a no-confidence vote in the parliament on Sept. 20.

The government collapse followed months of disagreements between ruling coalition partners and several Cabinet resignations.
