Slovenians have cast their votes for president. Although the incumbent is predicted to secure the most ballots, experts forecast that it will not be enough to prevent a runoff.
In Sunday's vote, the independent Danilo Türk faced competition from the ruling party and the opposition Social Democratic Borut Pahor, who is also an ex-premier. Türk is the favorite to win the greatest proportion of votes.
Pahor had narrowed the gap according to the latest polls, however, and experts predict a runoff on December 2.
Milan Zver, a member of European Parliament and the preferred candidate of Slovenia's prime minister, also stood for election. He has only a marginal chance of qualifying for the second round.
Poll stations closed at 7 p.m. (1800 GMT). About 1.6 million people were eligible to vote.
