HITS: 1958 | 14-03-2001, 19:23 | Comments: (0) | Categories: Croatia, Elections, Political science

The results of the parliamentary elections held in Croatia on 3rd January mean that there is likely to be a major shift in future government policy. BHHRG monitored the poll and while its observers found it to be conducted properly, concerns remain about certain aspects of the election.
Introduction and background
Parliamentary Elections in Croatia, 3rd January 2000

The Republic of Croatia held parliamentary elections on 3rd January 2000. These were the third since independence was declared in 1991 and the fourth multiparty elections since 1990. The elections were awaited with anticipation by the United States and European Union, in particular, which had long criticized the outgoing government, especially for an alleged "democratic deficit.". The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) had ruled the country since 1990. Its members had been elected to all key posts from the Presidency to a majority in local government. Following the death of President Franjo Tudjman on 10th December, 1999, the 3rd January elections were widely seen as the first serious opportunity for a democratically based change of power, especially as Presidential elections were scheduled soon afterwards for 24th January. (Full results of the Parliamentary elections were released on 19th January 2000.)
