The announcement of results of the plebiscite on the independence of Slovenia
Due to the rising tensions in Yugoslavia, the Demos parliamentary majority wished to repeal the old socialist legislation as soon and as radically as possible. Demos and the Opposition for the most part cooperated on the project to establish an independent Slovenian state. The result of this cooperation was the parliamentary decision to hold a plebiscite on an independent and sovereign Slovenian state.
At a joint session of all three chambers on 6 December 1990, the Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Plebiscite on the Sovereignty and Independence of Slovenia Act by a large majority.
The plebiscite was held on Sunday, 23 December 1990; 93.2% of eligible voters turned out, and 88.2% of all votes were cast ‘FOR’ a sovereign and independent state of Slovenia, which accounted for 95% of all voters who participated. The result led to great enthusiasm among the Slovenes. This act of popular self-determination laid the basis for Slovenia's subsequent national independence.
The plebiscite result was formally announced at a session of the Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia on 26 December 1990. The events were captured on camera by Tone Stojko and the photos are on display at the premises of the Public Relations Office.
