After consultations with MPs, Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic confirmed that Croatia will go into early elections, most likely in September.
After MPs axed Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic and the government fell, 82 out of the 151 MPs filed demands for the dissolution of parliament on Friday, which will lead to early parliamentary elections during the summer.
“An absolute majority [of MPs] have taken the position that elections should be held,” she said, admitting the initiative for dissolving parliament.
Once parliament is dissolved, the President will have to schedule early elections between 30 and 60 days.
