“If elections were held today only three parties would pass the election threshold of 5%.

According to the latest Crodemoskop opinion poll, the HDZ continues to lead in voter support with 26.4%. The SDP follows with close to 21%. The activist party Živi Zid is third with 12.7%, while Most is fourth with 7.6%. The Independents for Croatia Party has 2.6% voter support, not enough to pass the election threshold. The HDZ, SDP and Most dipped in popularity slightly when compared to last month, while Živi Zid and the Independents for Croatia made some ground.

Leading the list of most positively perceived politicians is no one, followed by President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović and Prime Minister Andrej PlenkovićIvan Pernar and Ivan Vilibor Sinčić of Živi Zid are a distant fourth and fifth.

Prime Minister Andrej Plenković leads the list of most negatively perceived politicians, followed by all politicians and SDP leader Davor Bernardić. Serb minority representative Milorad Pupovac is fourth.” (Voice of Croatia)

“The Croatian President said Friday that she has prepared demographic measures.

‘The measures are ready, we will agree on their presentation and I would like it to be a synergy and in cooperation with the Government. If not, then I will present them on my own,’ said President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, not going into detail about the measures.

The ‘Vecernji list’ daily had unofficially learned the measures that the President will present. One of them is to resolve the issue of fixed-term contracts which affects the youth, the most. The youth are thus unable to plan a family due to their uncertain employment status. Croatia is at the top of the EU when it comes to the number of workers employed on fixed-term contracts. It is no wonder that the biggest number of youth who wish to leave the country are based in Slavonija, where fixed-term contracts are mostly used.” (N1)
