Croatia will maintain the first round of its presidential elections on December 22, the nation’s prime minister has stated.

Andrej Plenkovic made the statement on Thursday through a government session.

Even though the prime minister is Croatia’s most important energy in government, the president will have a say in foreign policy and defense problems.

Regardless of this, the presidential function doesn’t have a hand in vetoing that the nation’s laws.

At the upcoming election, the incumbent president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic of this center-right Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) will probably be up against a candidate against the Social Democrats and Croatia’s former prime minister Zoran Milanovic.

A recent opinion survey saw Grabar-Kitarovic carrying the lead with 29 percent of the vote, whereas Milanovic polled at 24 percent.
