• Refugee crisis, economy weigh on Croatia election


    ZAGREB: Croatians voted in a general election Sunday with conservatives aspiring to return to power, as the EU nation faces a wave of migrants and slowly emerges from six years of recession. Opinion polls predict a tight race between the ruling center-left alliance, led by Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic’s Social Democrats (SDP), and the rival conservative ‘Patriotic Coalition,’ in Croatia’s first parliamentary election since it joined the European Union in 2013. Neither camp is expected to win an outright majority in the 151-seat parliament, making it likely that the government’s make-up will be decided in post-election talks with smaller parties.
