Slovenia is a parliamentary republic with a freely elected government. While political rights and civil liberties are generally respected, the right-wing government has verbally attacked democratic institutions including the media and judiciary; this prompted pushback from civil society, and the attacks have failed to yield a systemic weakening of the liberal democratic order. Corruption remains an issue, though media are proactive in exposing it. The judiciary, while somewhat distrusted, has established a record of independent rulings, and the rule of law is generally respected.
