Croatian acting prime minister to form new government

Zagreb, May 10 (Prensa Latina) Acting Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic on Friday received the task of forming a new government from President Zoran Milanovic.

A few days ago, his Croatian Democratic Union party (HDZ) closed a deal with the far-right Movement for the Fatherland (DP), which will allow him to create the new executive.

After submitting the signatures of 78 elected lawmakers, I got the mandate to form a government, Plenkovic wrote on the X profile.

Plenkovic is seeking a third term and now he has 30 days to present his cabinet, which will then be submitted to a voting in Parliament.

The HDZ won the April 17 elections with 61 of the 151 legislative seats.
