At the end of 2020, there were 168 political parties formally registered.
From 31 April to 30 November 2021, nine parties were added to the registry, and 14 were erased from the list.
The latest entry in the registry is “Grobnička stranka” led by Suzana Šebalja Colnar, and the headquarters are in Žeželovo Selo in the municipality of Čavle.
The registry was established in January 1990, and the first entry was the Croatian Social and Liberal Party (HSLS). Since then, 390 political parties have been registered formally, however, many of them have been also removed from the registry.
The requirement for establishing a political party is that at least 100 natural persons with active legal capacity agree to find it and register it. The registry is run by the ministry of justice and public administration, the daily newspaper says.
