The End of Janša's Experiment, Golob in Heaven 
[the election winner's surname Golob means "Pidgeon" in Slovene]

"The most positive news of yesterday's elections in Slovenia was the data on voter turnout. It exceeded the turnout from the last parliamentary elections in 2018 by thirteen percentage points and was above average for the Slovenian electoral habits of the last two decades. If we were politicians, we would say that the people won, that democracy won. Because we are not, because we do not have to flatter public opinion, because we are just observers of a society that is also ours, we can only say that Janez Janša has lost, and democracy, freedom, autonomy and justice were given the opportunity to rehabilitate them last night .”
