A month after parliamentary elections, good news for the main ruling party.

On Tuesday evening, Nova TV announced results of its first monthly poll after parliamentary elections held on 11 September. The poll was in the field during the period when Parliament was constituted and HDZ and MOST were finishing negotiations on forming the new government, reports dnevnik.hr on October 26, 2016.

According to the results, HDZ is by far the most popular political party, with the support of 35.3 percent of voters. SDP is second and is currently supported by 25.4 percent of voters. MOST is third with 9.9 percent of support, followed by Živi Zid (5.1 percent), Bandić Milan 365 (4.1 percent), HNS (2.9 percent) and IDS (2.6 percent).

About 54 percent of citizens think that the country is going in the wrong direction, while 36 percent believe that the country is on the right track. As can be expected, 64 percent of HDZ voters believe that the country is on the right track, while 75 percent of SDP voters think that Croatia is going in the wrong direction.
