Miroslav Cerar Jr. (Template:IPA-sl,[1] known as Miro Cerar Template:IPA-sl;[2] born 25 August 1963) is a Slovenian lawyer and politician who has been the 10th Prime Minister of Slovenia since 18 September 2014. With a non-political background and as one who was relatively new to politics at the time of his appointment as Prime Minister, Cerar leads the centrist Modern Centre Party, formerly named eponymously the Party of Miro Cerar.

Cerar was born in Ljubljana, and is the son of Miroslav, an Olympic gymnastics champion who later became a lawyer, and Zdenka Cerar (1941–2013), the first female State Prosecutor General of the Republic of Slovenia (1999-2004), Minister of Justice (2004) and Vice-President of the Liberal Democracy of Slovenia. In her youth she was twice Youth Champion in gymnastics in Yugoslavia and a member of the Yugoslav team. After she ended her active career, she became a coach and referee.[3][4][5]

Miro Cerar was a professor at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ljubljana[6] and a legal adviser to the Slovenian Parliament.[7]

Following the resignation of Alenka Bratušek’s government in May 2014, Cerar announced that he would enter national politics.[8] On 2 June 2014, he formed a new political party called Stranka Mira Cerarja/Stranka modernega centra (Party of Miro Cerar/Party of Modern Center).[9] In the July election, Cerar's party won a leading total 36 of 90 seats in the parliament,[7] with Cerar being later appointed prime minister-designate.[10]
