Total Croatia News

RTL and Jutarnji List have announced the results of the poll for first parliamentary constituency.

On Thursday evening, RTL and Jutarnji List announced the results of the poll for the first parliamentary constituency (City of Zagreb), reports RTL on June 9, 2016.

Just like in other constituencies, the majority of voters think that early parliamentary elections would be the best solution for the current political crisis. As much as 70.4% support early elections, while 20.9% of voters are against.

If elections were held now, SDP would win the most votes in this constituency (35.9%), followed by HDZ (20.3%), MOST (8.7%), and Živi Zid (7.2%). Other parties are well below the electoral threshold. In term of seats, SDP would get 8 MPs, HDZ 4, Živi Zid 1 and MOST 1 MP.

Compared to results of elections in November, SDP would gain two seats, HDZ would gain one seat, Živi Zid would gain one seat, MOST would lose two seats, HSLS would lose one seat and HNS would lose one seat. In November, HNS was part of the SDP-led Croatia Is Growing coalition, while HSLS was part of the HDZ-led Patriotic Coalition.

In November, SDP-led coalition received 39.15% of votes, HDZ-led coalition 26.04%, MOST 18.39%, and Živi Zid 3.39%.

Interestingly, MOST currently does not have a single MP in this constituency, since all three of their MPs have since left the party, with two founding the HRID political party and one serving as an independent MP within the HSLS Parliamentary Group.

This was the final constituency which was polled as part of the large national survey. Taking into account all ten constituencies, the results for 140 MPs which are elected in the constituencies are as follows: SDP would get 59 MPs, HDZ 48, MOST 12, Živi Zid 11, IDS 3, HDSSB 2, HNS 2, Milan Bandić’s party 2, and HSS 1 MP.

If results are calculated according to coalitions which existed during the last elections, SDP-led coalition would get 61 MPs (five more), while HDZ-led coalition would get 49 MPs (7 less). MOST would lose 7 MPs, while Živi Zid would gain 10 MPs.

In addition to 140 MPs elected in ten constituencies, additional 3 MPs are voted by Croatian citizens living abroad and 8 MPs by members of national minorities.
