Is Europe turning right? Croatia’s opposition conservatives win vote

Croatia’s conservative opposition (HDZ, EPP) won the country’s first election since it joined the European Union in 2013, preliminary results showed on Sunday, but its narrow victory meant lengthy coalition talks were likely to follow in the next days or weeks. (Reuters)

Such a result would mean the HDZ is likely to return to power with the backing of smaller parties, given the lack of an outright majority. (AFP)
