    In Slovenia, the outgoing president Danilo Tuerk has handed over power.

    The social democrat former prime minister Borut Pahor won earlier this month after supporting strict austerity measures.

    It is a largely ceremonial role, but Pahor pledged to bring the government and opposition together to find a way out of the crisis.
