It is led by Janez Janša, the Prime Minister-designate of Slovenia, and is currently the largest coalition party in Slovenia.

The SDS is the second-largest party in the National Assembly, with 26 MPs (28.8% of the total) as of the 2011 election. In the 2009 European Parliament election, it obtained 26.7% of the votes, which yielded three seats out of eight from Slovenia.
