LJUBLJANA, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Slovenian Prime Minister-designate Marjan Sarec has put forward the line-up of what is to become the 13th Slovenian government after it was endorsed by parliament, according to national media on Thursday.

Sarec's LMS party is to have four ministers in the cabinet, while the Social Democrats (SD), three, Modern Centre Party (SMC), four, Alenka Bratuscek Party (SAB), three, and the Democratic Party of Pensioners (DeSUS), two, said the report by Slovenian Press Agency STA.

On Wednesday, the presidents of the five parties signed a coalition agreement, pledging to work together in a minority government under Sarec from 2018 to 2022.

The list of the cabinet ministers came as the result of coordination by the above five parties.

The foreign, economy, labour and environment ministries are to be governed by SMC. SAB ministers will be in charge of overseeing infrastructure, EU cohesion policy, and Slovenians abroad. DeSUS will take on the defense ministerial position as well as the agriculture ministerial role.
