ZAGREB, Oct 3,  2020 – Pedja Grbin has become the fourth leader of Croatia’s strongest opposition Social Democratic Party (SDP) after defeating his leadership opponent in an election run-off on Saturday.

Slightly over 11,500 SDP members were entitled to vote in the second round at 286 polling stations in six electoral regions. Grbin won 65 percent of votes and Zeljko Kolar 35 percent.

The party election was held after Davor Bernardic stepped down as leader following a poor showing at the parliamentary election of July 5.

In the first round of voting held last Saturday, Grbin received 41.23 percent of votes and Kolar 25.53%.

Grbin was born in the northern Adriatic city of Pula in 1979. He is a law graduate and has served as the deputy leader of the SDP since 2016.
