LJUBLJANA (Reuters) - The Slovenian parliament confirmed on Wednesday new Prime Minister Alenka Bratusek's center-left government whose first priorities are to revive the economy, save the country's ailing banks and avoid an international bailout.

The 14-member cabinet will replace the conservative government of former prime minister Janez Jansa, ousted by parliament last month after losing its majority in January over a corruption scandal.
