First Mayors of Ljubljana: Tina Tomlje and Nuša Kerševan (Slovenia)

Tina Tomlje and Ana Nuša Kerševan each held two terms of office, as the term lasted for two years. Tina Tomlje served the office from 1982 to 1986 and Nuša Kerševan from 1986 to 1990.

The capital was run during difficult economic conditions in Yugoslavia. However, Tina Tomlje and Nuša Kerševan ensured that many important projects were realized with the help of the Ljubljana citizens: for example, the Ljubljana Maternity Hospital was built and the Path of Remembrance and Society was maintained, which is still under the care of the Green Ring Society, in which former mayor Ana Nuša Kerševan still operates.
