National Council (Slovenia)

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Slovenia

The National Council (Slovene: Državni svet) is according to the Constitution of Slovenia the representative of social, economic, professional and local interest groups in Slovenia and has a legislative function working as a corrective mechanism of the National Assembly, although it does not itself pass acts.[1] It may be regarded as the upper house, but the bicameralism is distinctively incomplete.[2] The council has 40 members: 22 representatives of local interests, six representatives of non-commercial activities, four representatives of employers, four of employees and four representatives of farmers, crafts, trades and independent professionals.[3] It is not elected directly by the population, but meant to represent different interest groups in the country. The councillors are elected for a five-year term.

The current President of the National Council is Mitja Bervar from 12 December 2012.
