Final results of Croatia's election commission confirmed the centre-left Kukuriku coalition has won 80 seats in the 151-seated parliament following the December 4 vote, news agency HINA reported. The coalition includes opposition parties SDP, HNS, IDS and HSU, who agreed in July to join forces for the December general elections. The governing Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) and its coalition partners lost their majority following the vote, gaining 47 seats in the parliament. Coalition leaders are expected to meet president Ivo Josipovic on December 14 and formally nominate SDP leader Zoran Milanovic as Croatia's new prime minister.
