UPDATE 1-Slovenia president nominates economist Vasle for cbank governor
The role includes a seat on the European Central Bank governing council.
Parliament will vote on whether to support Vasle within 30 days. Vasle needs the support of at least 46 out of 90 parliamentary members in a secret vote to take the post.
"After a number of official and unofficial talks with leaders of parliamentary groups the president established that Bostjan Vasle enjoys the necessary support of parliamentary members," the office said.
Analysts also believe parliament is likely to elect Vasle, 49, after it rejected Pahor's first candidate, deputy governor Primoz Dolenc in October.
At the helm of UMAR, Vasle urged the government to introduce structural reforms, particularly pension reform, to ease the burden of the rapidly ageing population on the state budget and ensure long-term economic growth. (Reporting By Marja Novak Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky)
