By bne IntelliNews January 24, 2012
The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) will elect a new leadership on May 20, news agency HINA reported, quoting party leader Jadranka Kosor as saying. Kosor said that there will be intra-party elections for HDZ's municipal, city and county branches between February 11 to May 5. Six candidacies for a HDZ leader have already been submitted - by Kosor, her deputy Darko Milinovic, Domagoj Ivan Milosevic, Tomislav Karamarko, Milan Kujundzic and Drago Prgomet. HDZ governed Croatia from 1990 until 2001 and was a leading party in the country's governing coalition between 2003 and 2011. It was overthrown by a centre-left Kukuriku coalition, led by SDP, following a December 4 vote.
