The current President of Slovenia, Borut Pahor, who won the second term in the second round of the presidential election, is the second Slovenian president who succeeded in that - after Milan Kucan. The re-elected president has been professionally and actively engaged in politics for 30 years and has been on all the most important functions in the country.

During his long career, Pahor (54) was president of the parliament, prime minister and member of the European Parliament, says "Deutsche Welle".

Both AP and Reuters describe him as an experienced politician, but also as "Instagram King" because of the frequent use of social media on which he publishes his photos of official duties and various sports activities.

Pahor complained after the vote that he is seen wrongly as a populist - as he said - which he isn't. 

The US agency says that Pahor, formerly a model, has been in many state functions and recalls that before being first elected president of 2012, he was the prime minister of Slovenia.

- Pahor tried to present himself as a unifier of all Slovenes, but critics say he simply avoids taking a stance on important issues - said AP, concluding that key issues Slovenia is facing are the economy, the border dispute with Croatia and the future of the EU. 

Reuters points out that Pahor promised that, if he won another term, he would focus on "linking people, co-operation, political stability, and security".

The British agency notes that although the role of the president of Slovenia is predominantly ceremonial, the president leads the army and appoints several senior officials, including the central bank governor, although most of his appointment decisions must be confirmed by parliament.

The new-old President Pahor appeared as President of the Social Democrats (SD) in the last presidential election, and in this case - as an independent candidate because his party refused to propose him as a candidate.
