    Croatian Party of Pensioners

    The Croatian Party of Pensioners (Croatian: Hrvatska stranka umirovljenika, HSU) is a Croatian political party. It is currently led by Silvano Hrelja. When the Party was founded, few people took it seriously and many commentators speculated that the ultimate purpose of HSU was take away pensioners' votes from rejuvenated SDP and thus help ruling HDZ remain in power. However, the Party gradually built its organisation throughout the country and slowly rose in popularity due to both HDZ and left-centre cabinets of Ivica Račan refusing to honour a Constitutional Court verdict that ordered the government to pay back pensions that had been denied in early 1990s. At the Croatian parliamentary election, 2003, the party won 4.0% of the popular vote and 3 out of 151 seats entering parliament for the first time. This was the biggest surprise of the election because they used very little propaganda to promote the party. They got more than 5% of the votes in 3 electoral districts and in 4 of them between 4% and 5% of the votes. After the elections HSU has agreed to support Ivo Sanader as the new prime minister and provided the necessary votes for HDZ and its allies to form a majority in the

    Croatian Democratic Union

    Croatian Democratic Union

    The Croatian Democratic Union (Croatian: Hrvatska demokratska zajednica, HDZ) is a Christian democratic and conservative political party and the main center-right political party in Croatia. It is one of the two major contemporary political parties in Croatia, along with the centre-left Social Democratic Party (SDP). It is currently the second-largest party in the Croatian Parliament with 44 seats. The Christian democratic HDZ governed Croatia from 1990 to 2000 and, in coalition, from 2003 to 2011. The party is an associate member of the European People's Party (EPP). The HDZ was founded in 17 June 1989 by Croatian nationalist dissidents led by Franjo Tuđman. When the party was founded, the multi-party system in Croatia was at an embryonic stage and open manifestations of Croatian nationalism were frowned upon. The HDZ was founded in an almost conspiratorial manner, and its first offices were in a Zagreb shack. Because of that the party founders proudly call themselves barakaši - from "baraka", which is the Croatian word for "shack". Despite such humble beginnings, the party quickly benefited from the loosening of Communist control. Tuđman and other HDZ officials traveled abroad

    Croatian True Revival

    Croatian True Revival (Croatian: Hrvatski istinski preporod or HIP) was a right-wing political party in Croatia. Founded in 2002, the party never won any seats in general elections, although it briefly had three MPs in the Sabor in late 2003. HIP grew out of a conservative citizens' association known by the same initialism, called "Croatian Identity and Prosperity" (Croatian: Hrvatski identitet i prosperitet), established by conservative politician Miroslav Tuđman, son of the late Franjo Tuđman. It was formally registered as a party in January 2002, at the time when the main conservative party Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) was going through a period of considerable internal turmoil brought about by their defeat in the 2000 general election. HIP sought to rally right-wing politicians and voters who had been disappointed with the party's change in position from right-wing to centre-right under the guidance of the newly elected party chief Ivo Sanader. HIP thus advocated a return to conservative nationalism which had been espoused by HDZ and its longtime president Franjo Tuđman in the 1990s. It adamantly opposed Croatian government's cooperation with the International Criminal

The party is a member of Liberal International and the European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party. Its current president is Darinko Kosor, elected to that post in November 2009.

It was the first Croatian political party formed after the reintroduction of multi-party system. As such it was part of Coalition of People's Accord during the first free elections in 1990. Its first leader was Slavko Goldstein, succeeded in 1990 by Dražen Budiša, who remained the leader until 1995. HSLS became the main opposition party after 1992 presidential and parliamentary elections and remained such until late 1990s. In February 1996, Vlado Gotovac became the president of the party. However, in November 1997 Budiša became the president again, and a faction led by Gotovac split off to form the Liberal Party. In 1998 HSLS created permanent coalition with Social Democratic Party, which won elections two years later, replaced ruling

    Istrian Democratic Assembly

    The Istrian Democratic Assembly (Croatian: Istarski demokratski sabor, Italian: Dieta democratica istriana) is a Croatian regional and social liberal political party in Istria. The hyphenated abbreviation IDS-DDI is most commonly used. The three rams on the party coat of arms represent a historical symbol of the region, which is also represented by the ram in the fourth of the five parts of the crown resting atop the Croatian coat of arms (25-field white and red chequerboard) on the Croatian flag. The party is led by Ivan Jakovčić. In the Croatian Parliament, however, it has been Damir Kajin who most frequently acted as the parties spokesperson and he headed the party list in the 2007 elections where the party gained 3 representatives. The party was founded 1990, on the eve of the first multi-party elections in modern Croatia. The party decided not to participate, thus allowing Communists, recently rebranded as the Social Democratic Party of Croatia, to make a sweep of the region. IDS instead made its electoral debut on 1992 elections and used the collapse of the SDP to take all three Istrian constituencies. This result turned Istria into an area of significant concern for Croatian

    Croatian Demochristian Party

    Croatian Christian Democratic Party (Croatian: Hrvatska kršćanska demokratska stranka, HKDS) was a right-wing, conservative political party in Croatia. It was created in 1990 and modelled after Christian Democrat parties of Western Europe, although, due to specific circumstances of early 1990s Croatia, it had more right wing than centre-right rhetoric. However, during the first parliamentary elections in 1990 the party joined bloc of moderate nationalists called Coalition of People's Accord. Like all parties of that bloc, it fared badly, but one year later it had ministerial post in the "National Unity" government of Franjo Gregurić. In 1992 parliamentary elections, HKDS, running on its own ticket, failed to enter Croatian Parliament, while its leader Ivan Cesar finished seventh in presidential race. This fiasco led HKDS to unite with Croatian Democratic Party (HDS) into Croatian Christian Democratic Union. Dissident faction of HKDS continued to operate under the party's old name. In 2009 it merged with two other parties (Croatian Demochristians and Party of Croatian Renaissance) into Croatian Demochristian Party

    Croatian Bloc

    Croatian Bloc

    Croatian Bloc (Croatian: Hrvatski blok, HB) was a right-wing political party in Croatia. Its name was often followed by the phrase Pokret za modernu Hrvatsku meaning "Movement for a Modern Croatia". It was founded in September 2002, following the convention of the Croatian Democratic Union at which Ivić Pašalić failed to unseat his main rival Ivo Sanader. Pašalić and his followers founded the new party, accusing Sanader both of winning the convention by undemocratic means and straying from the nationalist legacy of Franjo Tuđman. The new party, however, didn't attract the majority of HDZ supporters who rallied around Sanader during the 2003 parliamentary elections. Croatian Bloc failed to enter Croatian Parliament. On May 31, 2008, the Croatian Bloc Council decided to disband the party. The party ended its activities on 31 August 2008, with its members joining Only Croatia, a marginal eurosceptic right-wing party. Croatian Bloc was officially erased from the party registry on 2 January 2009.

    Dalmatian Liberal Party

    The Dalmatian Liberal Party (Croatian: Dalmatinska liberalna stranka, DLS) was a regional left-wing liberal political party in Croatia formed by dissident members of the Liberal Party. The party was founded on April 4, 2005, and its membership in 2006 was estimated at 160. A number of dissidents, led by Ante Tešija, then president of the Split city branch of the Liberal Party, disagreed with the party's central committee in Zagreb on the proposed reunification of the party with the Croatian Social Liberal Party. After this unification took place, Tešija and the other dissidents formed the new party. Its members are largely former members of the Liberal Party from Split and the surrounding area. Tešija became president of the DLS. In the last local elections the party got 1,873 votes (1.2%) in Split-Dalmatia County. The party's stated program includes opposition to overbuilding on the Adriatic coast, prosecution of industrial pollution, and greater government spending on education and health care.

    Social Democratic Party of Croatia

    Social Democrats of Croatia (Croatian: Socijaldemokrati Hrvatske, SDH) is a now defunct left-wing political party in Croatia. It was founded in 1990 under the name of Social Democratic Party of Croatia (Croatian: Socijaldemokratska stranka Hrvatske, SDSH). Like most parties created at the time, it was opposed to Communist government and wanted Croatia to secede from Yugoslavia, yet it had the distinction of being one of the few to present itself as left-wing. The party founders included many prominent intellectuals, including Miroslav Tuđman, who was at the time opposed to his father and future president Franjo Tuđman. The party claimed that it was continuing tradition of the very first Social Democratic Party of Croatia, created in 1894 and merged in 1919 into Communist Party of Yugoslavia. On the first parliamentary elections in 1990, SDSH joined moderate Coalition of People's Accord and fared badly, winning only a handful of seats. However, its position was strong enough to warrant ministerial post in the national unity government of Franjo Gregurić in 1991. The party lost that post when its prominent member Zvonko Lerotić defected to Croatian Democratic Union. Before 1992

    Croatian Pure Party of Rights

    Croatian Pure Party of Rights (Croatian: Hrvatska čista stranka prava or HČSP) is a far right political party in Croatia founded in 1992. The party claims to be an ideological descendant of the same-named right-wing historical party which was active in the early 20th century and which advocated the right to self-determination for Croatia at the time when the country was part of Austria-Hungary and Kingdom of Yugoslavia. On Croatian parliamentary election, 2011, coalition consisted of Croatian Party of Rights dr. Ante Starčević and Croatian Pure Party of Rights won one parliamentary seat. The original HČSP was founded in 1904 by the Kvaternik and other factions of the Croatian Party of Rights (HSP), calling on the tradition of one of the Frankovci, a historical right-wing fraction movement of the Party of Rights from late 19th and early 20th century. Like most right-wing parties in Croatia, the HČSP claim a legacy descending from Ante Starčević. It was reconstituted in 1992 after Socialist-era suppression was no longer an issue. Party policy would introduce lustration to the Croatian system, and would also cease cooperation with the ICTY. The party is also opposed to Croatia joining

    Serb People's Party

    Serb People's Party (Croatian: Srpska narodna stranka, SNS, Serbian: Српска народна странка, CHC) is a political party that represents ethnic Serb minority in Croatia. The party was founded in early 1991 by ethnic Serb politicians opposed to the radical and secessionist policies of Republic of Serbian Krajina. As the conflict in Croatia escalated, SNS quickly found itself in a precarious position. Its base was limited to the territories under Croatian government control, where ethnic Serbs were increasingly subjected to all kinds of abuse, often under tacit or open support by authorities. The SNS, on the other hand, never criticised the government of Franjo Tuđman. In return, the state-controlled media described the SNS as the only legitimate representative of Croatian Serbs and its leader Milan Đukić was appointed to many important government posts, including assistant minister of interiors, vice-speaker of Sabor and presidential advisor. As such, the SNS was often nicknamed "Party of Tuđman's Serbs" in the early 1990s and many in the Croatian public saw it as an extension of the ruling Croatian Democratic Union than a party in its own right. This perception was underlined after

    Croatian Christian Democratic Union

    Croatian Democratic Party (Croatian: Hrvatska demokratska stranka, HDS) is now defunct right-wing party in Croatia. The party was among first to be founded after the arrival of multi-party democracy in Croatia. Led by veteran Communist-era dissident Marko Veselica, HDS was supposed to be the focal point for the most radical Croatian nationalists. This spot was, however, taken by Franjo Tuđman and his Croatian Democratic Union. HDS instead joined moderate Coalition of People's Accord and, consequently, fared badly in the 1990 parliamentary elections. After, HDS tried to live to its radical reputation by harsh criticism of Tuđman's government for the perceived appeasement of Serbia and Yugoslav People's Army during the opening stages of war. When the war escalated in Summer of 1991, HDS was nevertheless admitted into the "National Unity" government of Franjo Gregurić. In less than a year, HDS lost reputation of most radical Croatian party to Croatian Party of Rights. This reflected on 1992 presidential and parliamentary elections, which led HDS to merge with Croatian Christian Democratic Party into a new party called Croatian Christian Democratic Union.

    The Croatian Liberation Movement (Croatian: Hrvatski oslobodilački pokret or HOP) is a far right party originally formed by Croatian emigrants and headed by former leaders of the Axis-allied Independent State of Croatia (NDH) in 1956 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Until the 1970s HOP was the biggest Croatian emigrant organization, with more than 80 percent of its members made up from political emigrants who had been active in some way in the political life of the 1941–1945 Independent State of Croatia. Originally led by Ante Pavelić, the former Poglavnik, other signatories of HOP's first foundation charter included former NDH officials such as Džaferbeg Kulenović and Vjekoslav Vrančić. Because of this HOP is widely perceived as a successor of the Ustaša, the WW2 Croatian fascist organisation. The stated goal of the organization was the re-establishment of the Independent State of Croatia in its WW2 borders, encompassing most of present-day Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, which were at the time of HOP's founding both part of SFR Yugoslavia. Although considered to be the most radical Croatian nationalist organization, HOP described itself as an anti-communist organization committed

Upon their foundation DC described themselves as a "moderate version of HDZ". Following HDZ's return to power in the 2003 general election, DC (which had been informally allied with HDZ during the election) gained a single seat in Croatian Parliament and a single ministerial post in the Croatian Government. Vesna Škare-Ožbolt, the party's leader and their only representative elected to parliament, was appointed Justice Minister in the Cabinet of Ivo Sanader I. She held the post from December 2003 to February 2006, when she was forced to step down by Prime Minister Ivo Sanader following allegations that she leaked information to the press and opposed certain government policies, although some media pundits ascribed her resignation to her prominent public stance and ministerial results which overshadowed HDZ ministers.

    Croatian Independent Democrats

    Croatian Independent Democrats (Croatian: Hrvatski nezavisni demokrati or HND) was a political party in Croatia. Its founders were members of moderate faction within Croatian Democratic Union. In 1993 their unofficial champion Josip Manolić, former right-hand man of President Franjo Tuđman, was becoming demoted and increasingly marginalised, while Gojko Šušak, powerful defence minister and leader of hardline nationalist faction, was winning Tuđman's favour. Following the open rift between the two, Tuđman in Spring of 1994 tried to replace Manolić from the position of House of Chambers speaker. Manolić, however, preempted this by talking a number of HDZ representatives to support him together with opposition. Soon, he was joined by House of Representatives speaker Stjepan Mesić and two of them announced split from HDZ and formation of new party. They accused Tuđman of embracing authoritarianism, extreme nationalism and irredentist policies towards Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was, in their mind, betrayal of founding principles of HDZ. From that point onward, HND tried to describe itself as a "genuine" HDZ. For a while, it looked that HDZ would ultimately lose parliamentary
