Analysis

Croatia will gain an extra seat as a result of the redistribution of seats after Brexit. The position of an MEP is perceived as a prestigious job for ambitious politicians, with Croatia’s incumbent Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic starting and profiling his career as a prominent MEP, even taking some highly-responsible roles, such as chairing the Delegation to the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Association Committee and being Vice-Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

The latest polls put the governing HDZ party (EPP) still in the lead with almost 25% and the SDP (S&D) in 2nd place with just under 20% of the vote.

Pod Tuđmanovim vizionarskim vodstvom ostvarili smo najveće uspjehe: demokraciju, međunarodno priznanje, obranu od velikosrpske agresije, oslobođenje, mirnu reintegraciju, kraj rata u BiH te obnovu ratom razrušenih krajeva! - istaknuo je @AndrejPlenkovic. https://t.co/pw5frYGz77

JANDROKOVIĆ NA OTKRIVANJU SPOMENIKA: Tuđman je uvijek bio ispred drugih! Državnik koji je, hrabrošću i razboritošću, proveo svoju viziju i borbu za hrvatsku državu u stvarnost!

Nakon Kompakta i dalje ćemo odlučno sprječavati ilegalne migracije i čvrsto štititi hrvatsku granicu! Naša se nacionalna politika ni u čemu neće promijeniti, samostalno ćemo odlučivati o migracijama! - poručio je @DavorBozinovic iz Marakeša. https://t.co/kmL8o0hb4G
