On 27 February 2013, the Slovenian Prime Minster Ivan Janez Janša was dismissed by the Parliament in a vote of no confidence. This followed the release of a report by Slovenia's anti-corruption agency, Commission for the Prevention of Corruption (CPC), which alleged that Janša and other high-ranking politicians had "systematically and repeatedly violated the law by failing to properly report their assets to the Commission". According to the report, Janša failed to declare "more than 200,000 euros…of unknown origin" and the CPC stated that it had reasons to believe that the purchase of property by Janša was indirectly co-funded by a major government contractor.

The allegations sparked public calls for Janša resignation from members of the coalition and public protests against the Government. In response, Janša rejected the allegations and his ruling party, in an open letter, criticised the CPC as a biased agency of former communist leaders who aimed to destabilise the current Government in order to allow the opposition to take power. The CPC rebutted the criticism citing it as an example of the disdain the main political parties hold for the national institutions which exist to uphold the rule of law.

Alenka Bratusek from the opposition party has been appointed as the new Prime Minister and 36 members of Parliament have submitted a request for a review of the Law on Integrity and Prevention of Corruption, under which the CPC has its mandate.
