Dead­locked Croa­tia holds un­cer­tain snap elec­tion

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Croa­t­ians be­gan vot­ing yes­ter­day in a snap elec­tion whose out­come might pro­long po­lit­i­cal un­cer­tainty in the EU’s new­est mem­ber, which had shifted to the right un­der pre­vi­ous con­ser­va­tive gov­ern­ments. The elec­tion comes as the for­mer Yu­goslav repub­lic faces eco­nomic strug­gles and at a time of strained ties be­tween neigh­bours in the volatile Balkans, no­tably with for­mer en­emy Ser­bia. Some 3.8 mil­lion Croa­t­ians are el­i­gi­ble to vote in the polls, which come less than a year af­ter an elec­tion last Novem­ber pro­duced no ab­so­lute win­ner.
