“Five candidates have submitted applications to become the next governor of the central bank, including two serving vice-governors, one former vice-governor and a former cabinet member, President Borut Pahor’s office said on Tuesday after the deadline for applications passed.

Applications have been submitted by vice-governors Marko Bošnjak and Primož Dolenc, the latter in charge at Banka Slovenije since May after the office was vacated by Boštjan Jazbec, who left for a job on the EU’s Single Resolution Board.

Former vice-governor Mejra Festić has applied for the job, her candidacy backed by several prominent bankers and economists, according to media reports.” (Slovenia Times)
