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.

U Strasbourgu s @eucopresident @CharlesMichel o pripremama za idući #EUCO. Cijenimo podršku na putu 🇭🇷 prema članstvu u #Schengen i #Eurozone. Razgovarali smo i o stanju u BiH i važnosti postizanja dogovora političkih aktera u 🇧🇦 o pravičnim izmjenama Izbornog zakona.

Na @EPPGroup na poziv @ManfredWeber s premijerom @kmitsotakis održao sam izlaganje o aktualnim izazovima pred 🇪🇺, kao i ključnim temama za 🇭🇷. Susret i s delegacijom @HDZ_HR u @Europarl_EN. Odajemo priznanje Davidu Sassoliju koji je svojim primjerom Europu približavao građanima.

U @Europarl_EN opraštamo se od @DavidSassoli, istinskog Europljanina i velikog prijatelja 🇭🇷, političara koji je bio snažan zagovornik europskih vrijednosti i jedinstva. Nedostajat će nam njegova pristupačnost, dobronamjernost i sposobnost da gradi mostove među ljudima.
