Ballot Croatia: the challenge of the leader of the outgoing conservative and the ex-premier
Croatia has chosen its president. The polls open today until 19 in the balkan Country for the runoff elections to elect the Head of State. To compete, the outgoing president, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, the Hdz (the Croatian democratic Union, centre-right, the ruling party of Zagreb) finished second in the first round of the December 22, with 26.7% of the votes, and the candidate of the centre-left, the former prime minister is social democrat Zoran Milanovic (Sdp), who is the first, surprise, two weeks ago, with 29.6%. To know the next tenant of the Pantovcak (the presidential residence) will have to wait for the 19, with the first exit poll. The real results will begin to arrive an hour later. The latest surveys indicate a substantial equality between the two opponents.

The conservative Kitarovic, 51 years old, very active in foreign policy in his 5 years of mandate, seeks reappointment. The “woman of the people”, as he likes to call himself, will have to go to take the vows of sovranisti and the nationalists, who in the first round had awarded the singer-politician of the ultra-right, Miroslav Skoro, who came third in the first round, with 24.4% of the vote.

The former prime minister Milanovic, 53 years, which is not shone particularly during her tenure as the prime minister (2011-2016), which won the first round, especially by the voters of the large cities, asking for a possibility for the croats to “surprise them”, as said in the last elections. An election campaign, its, aimed primarily at young people serving as “president of modern Croatia”.

Although the role of the president of the Republic is more representative, the next mandate will be marked by important challenges. The most important function of the Head of State is the participation in the foreign policy of the Country, and from the first of January, in fact, Croatia has taken over the rotating presidency of the Council of the european Union. And in may, Zagreb will host the summit between the Eu and the Balkans: an opportunity to act as a credible intermediary in the process of european enlargement in the region.

But, above all, the presidential elections of today, will be a key test in view of the elections to renew the Parliament expected at the end of 2020.
