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.

[email protected] : HDZ je relativni pobjednik - Nedostajalo nam je oko 1.000 glasova za 5. mandat! Izašli smo samostalno - to je odluka iza koje stojimo! Zadovoljan sam i s time što je s naše liste izabrana zastupnica Hrvata iz BiH Željana @ZovkoEU. https://t.co/VnvgBPD9Zl

1. @KarloRessler: REČENO - UČINJENO! Najavili smo mandat više nego što smo dosad imali - to smo i ostvarili! HDZ je u velikoj koaliciji 2014. dobio 4 mandata, a sada ćemo ih imati najmanje - 5! A nastupili smo samostalno i demonstrirali svoju snagu!

Tomislav Culjak: Vodili smo afirmativnu kampanju s odličnim kandidatima i najboljim programom. I potvrdilo se da smo - daleko najjači! (1/2)
