Ljubljana - The Slovenian parliament Friday voted 50 to 36 for the country's new cabinet, led by the Social Democrat Borut Pahor.
The new premier pledged to focus his government on finding "the way out of the financial and economic crisis," the Slovenian news agency STA reported.
"We must take it (the crisis) as a challenge and work as a team," Pahor said as he presented his cabinet to the parliament.
Pahor, 45, has built a youthful cabinet with five women, two of whom control the defence and interior ministries. Of the 18 ministers, seven are non-partisan experts.
