LJUBLJANA, March 6 (Xinhua) -- Janez Jansa, the Slovenian incoming prime minister, nominated his 16-member cabinet on Friday evening.
Most of the candidates for ministers are senior politicians with prior experience in government.
Jansa's own Democrats (SDS) will have seven members in the new cabinet, two of them without portfolio.
MP Anze Logar, the chair of the Commission for Oversight of Public Finances, has been nominated for the foreign ministry and Ales Hojs, former MP and defense minister, for the home policy portfolio.
Long-serving MP Andrej Sircelj has been slated for the treasury, and Andrej Vizjak, who has served twice as minister under Jansa, is to take over at the Environment Ministry, according to the Slovenian Press Agency STA.
Vasko Simoniti is to return to the Culture Ministry after having served a full term there in Jansa's 2004-2008 government.
Slovenia's lawmakers confirmed Janez Jansa, the 61-year-old leader of SDS as prime minister-designate on March 3.
