Conservative government wins Croatian election

Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic's conservative alliance clearly won the Croatian parliamentary election on Sunday. After exit polls, 61 of the 151 mandates emerged, surprisingly holding the result of the 2016 election. The opposition alliance of the social democrat Davor Bernardic had only 44 mandates.

The right-wing extremist movement of the nationalist singer Miroslav Skoro came in third place with 16 mandates, the Croatian media reported after the election at 7:00 p.m. Skoro had hoped to become kingmaker after the election. The left-green alliance Mozemo ("We can") got eight mandates and immediately made it into parliament, the anti-establishment movement Most also achieved eight mandates.

Four years ago, Plenkovic's Croatian Democratic Community and its allies had won 61 mandates. At that time, she narrowly prevailed over the left-wing alliance led by today's President Zoran Milanovic, which achieved 56 mandates. Most came in third place with 13 mandates.
