Croatian President Josipovic Tops Popularity Poll

Although approval ratings for Croatia's ruling centre-left coalition have declined, President Ivo Josipovic remains the country's number one politician, a new opinion survey has suggested.


The public opinion survey conducted for Croatian state television put the ruling Social Democratic Party, SDP, ahead of its opposition rival, the Croatian Democratic Union, HDZ.

The SDP would pick up more than 24 per cent of the vote while the HDZ would take 21.6 per cent if polls were held today, suggested the survey conducted by the Promocija Plus agency.

However the SDP has lost a percentage point of its popularity compared to the results of the same survey in October.

The Labour party would keep its place as the third strongest party with 7.5 per cent, followed by the Croatian People's Party on 4.8 per cent.

Meanwhile the SDP's Ivo Josipovic, the president of Croatia, remains the most popular politican in the country, the survey suggested.

Croatian Democratic Union leader Tomislav Karamarko is the least-liked public figure according to the poll, followed by Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic of the SDP, state television in Zagreb reported.
