Pavel Gantar, also known as Pavle Gantar (born 26 October 1949) is a Slovenian politician and sociologist. Between 2008 and 2011, he served as Chairman of the Slovenian National Assembly. Since February 2012, he's been the president of the social liberal extra-parliamentary party Zares.

 

Political career

In 1989, he obtained his PhD in sociology at the University of Zagreb. In 1990, he joined the Liberal Democratic Party. The same year, he was elected to the Parliament of Slovenia in the first free elections held in Slovenia after WWII. Between 1994 and 2000, he served as the Minister of Environment in the cabinet of Janez Drnovšek. In 2001, he became the Minister of Information Society in the last cabinet led by Janez Drnovšek and later by Anton Rop.

 

In 2004, the Liberal Democracy of Slovenia was defeated by the centre-right Slovenian Democratic Party. Nevertheless, Gantar was elected to the National Assembly of Slovenia, where he served as an opposition MP until 2008. In 2007, he joined the newly formed social liberal Zares party led by Gregor Golobič. In 2008, he was re-elected to the Lower House of the Slovenian Parliament. Soon afterwards, he was elected as its chairman, succeeding France Cukjati.

 

Following the exit of the party Zares from the ruling coalition, Gantar resigned from his position in September 2011 and was succeeded by Ljubo Germič. In February 2012, he replaced Gregor Golobič as the president of Zares.
