(ANSAmed) – ZAGREB, JULY 6 – After the hard defeat of the center-left yesterday in the parliamentary elections in Croatia, the leader of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Davor Bernardic, resigned today from the leadership of the party.
“The SDP management is aware of its responsibility, as I am, and I withdraw from the leadership of the party,” Bernardic said this morning, also announcing that he does not intend to run again for the next congress.
With 24.9 percent the center-left, united in a large coalition called Restart, suffered the biggest defeat yesterday in Croatia in more than twenty years.
Conservatives of Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic triumphed yesterday’s elections with 37.3 percent, a result that guarantees Croatia another four years of a stable center-right, moderate and pro-European government. (ANSAmed).
