Slovenia’s new president calls for unity

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia — Former Slovenia Prime Minister Borut Pahor, who has called for unity in the tiny EU nation amid growing discontent with government tax increase and spending cuts, won the presidential election Sunday, according to an exit poll.

Pahor won 67.44 percent of the vote compared with 32.56 for his rival, incumbent Danilo Turk, according to the State Electoral Commission, after nearly all votes were counted. Final results are expected later in the week.
