Croatia has a new government with 83 votes for, 61 against and 5 abstentions. Croatia's prime minister-designate is Tihomir Oreskovic and he will lead a government made up of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) and the Bridge party.
Oreskovic has already named his cabinet, including twenty ministers, and the two vice prime ministers are the leaders of HDZ and Bridge, Tomislav Karamarko and Bozo Petrov. Of the twenty ministers in the new cabinet six are from the Bridge party and the remaining fourteen from HDZ. Oreskovic nicknamed the new ministers “Tim’s Team,” in reference to his middle name.
At 10 past midnight last night the now former prime minister Zoran Milanovic handed over the government to Oreskovic. “Any advice?,” Oreskovic asked. “None whatsoever,” answered Milanovic.
