An anti-immigration opposition party won Slovenia’s parliamentary election on Sunday, taking 25 percent of the vote, according to preliminary results.

“The President is confident that the future government will make a valid contribution or join the effort building a democratic, successful and stronger European Union,” the spokesman said.
