1990 Slovenian parliamentary election

Parliamentary elections were held in the Republic of Slovenia in April 1990. They were the first direct elections held in Slovenia since World War II, and the first relatively free elections held there since 1925. It was actually a transitional election leading to the country's first fully democratic election on 6 December 1992, by which time Slovenia had already gained its independence.[1]
