Croatian conservatives secure majority to form government

Croatia’s main opposition conservatives and a small party that emerged as a kingmaker in last month’s election have secured the parliamentary majority needed to form a government, President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic said Tuesday. Members of the Patriotic Coalition, led by the main opposition conservative HDZ, and the smaller Most party “informed me that they enjoy the support of a majority, or 78 deputies” in the 151-seat assembly, Grabar-Kitarovic told reporters. “By Wednesday evening either we will have a PM-designate or I will name a temporary government and call early parliamentary elections,” Grabar-Kitarovic said.
