Total Croatia News

Most preferential votes in Split went to Damir Krstičević from HDZ (12.849)

Split Mayor Ivo Baldasar (Prime Minister Coalition) has suffered a debacle at the parliamentary elections on Sunday, winning only 303 votes in Split, with the most going to HDZ’s Damir Krstičević, Večernji List reported on September 12, 2016.

Baldasar was the top seeded for Milan Bandić’s coalition in the 10th electoral unit, where HDZ led by Krstičević won easily with 42.46% of votes.

The coalition list gathered around Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandić did not cross the threshold in the centre of Zagreb. Traditionally the victory went to SDP’s coalition, with most preferential votes going to SDP leader Zoran Milanović (33.446), while HDZ President Andrej Plenković gained 27.832 votes. The top seeded for Bandić’s coalition Jelena Pavičić Vukičević won only 1.054 votes.

Bandić’s coalition did not cross the threshold in the 7th electoral unit either, covering the south of Zagreb, but did so in the 6th (southeast Zagreb) and 2nd (east Zagreb), where Bandić was top seeded.

In the east of Zagreb HDZ took the win (37.12%), followed by SDP coalition (29.18%), with Bandić’s coalition in third place (11.06%). Most preferential votes went to HDZ’s Zlatko Hasanbegović (6.551), followed by HNS’ Anka Mrak Taritaš (5.589) and Milan Bandić in third with 5.405 preferential votes.

Southeast Zagreb was conquered by SDP with 39.84%, followed by HDZ with 29.07%, with most preferential votes going to HDZ’s Goran Marić (6.462).

In the south of Zagreb, most votes went to SDP (35%), then HDZ with 31.85%, while Bandić’s list received 6.77%. Most preferential votes went to Milanka Opačić (8.189).

SDP coalition won in Rijeka traditionally, whose top seeded Željko Jovanović won the most preferential votes in that town (6.327).

People’s Coalition list also won most votes in Pula (33.59%), where it surprisingly outdid the IDS coalition that gained 32.93%. The most popular candidate in Pula was Peđa Grbin from SDP with 2.843 preferential votes.

The SDP coalition had a minor advantage in Osijek with 32.66% over HDZ (32.07%). The first in preferential votes was Ivan Vrdoljak from HNS (3.978) and Miroslav Tuđman from HDZ with 3.667.

Tenth electoral unit was the election stronghold of MOST, coming in third with 16.62% behind HDZ and People’s Coalition.

It’s interesting that the MOST list, led by Božo Petrov, lost to HDZ in Metković, Vrgorac and Omiš.
