Slovenia is a parliamentary republic with a freely elected government that generally respects political rights and civil liberties. A right-wing government that sought to undermine the rule of law was replaced by a left-liberal coalition after the April 2022 parliamentary elections. Corruption remains an issue, while cases of economic exploitation have become more prominent. The judiciary has established a record of independent rulings.
