Slovenia set to get first woman army chief of staff in Ermenc
The replacement of Geder, who started serving as chief of the general staff on 22 February this year, with Ermenc is to be proposed by Erjavec at Tuesday's correspondence session of the government.
Ermenc graduated from the Ljubljana Faculty of Social Sciences and from the Royal College of Defence Studies in London and got her master's degree in 2009 at the King's College University of London.
She was actively involved in the 1991 independence war as a member of the Territorial Defence, the army's precursor. She has been employed in the Slovenian Armed Forces for 27 years.
She was promoted to the rank of brigadier in May 2011 and in March this year she was named deputy chief of the general staff, the highest position for a woman in the army at the time.
