The race to be the next Croatian President is entering its final stage with the second round of elections to be held this Sunday the 5th of January.
The SDP candidate, Zoran Milanovic, enters the second round of voting with a slight advantage over the current President and HDZ candidate, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic. With only three days left the two presidential candidates are campaigning hard hoping to collect the floating votes from the first round.
These are the seventh presidential elections since the first direct ones were held in 1992.
In what will surely be a very close finish every vote will be vital as the difference between the two leading candidates was tight in the first round. Milanovic won the first round with 29.55 percent of the vote, whilst Grabar-Kitarovic winning 26.65 percent. The third placed candidate from the first round, Miroslav Skoro, won 24.43 percent of the votes, meaning that his voters could be crucial for the second round of voting this Sunday. And as Skoro has already announced that he will not give his support for either of the leading candidates the fate of his supporters is hanging in the balance.
