A Professor of International Law: Slovenia's New President

Danilo Türk, who is currently employed as a professor of International Law and Dean of Student Affairs at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ljubljana, is the new president-elect of Slovenia.

According to unofficial results, he is said to have won the run-off on 11 November 2007 with 70.8% of the votes thus beating the convervative Lojze Peterle.
