>> Croatia holding its second general election in less than a year but still not getting a real result. The conservative HDZ party claiming victory in Sunday's poll, but the country looks set for months of horse-trading with no party set for a majority. The previous HDZ-led coalition collapsed within months.
Now any new pact could be equally wobbly. The second-placed social democrats still hoping they could cobble together a government.>> This was not a happy day for Croatia. We were part of an experiment for eight months, and where did we get? Nowhere. What have we achieved? Nothing. Croatia needs a stable government and at this moment we still don't know what that government will be.
We are open to ideas.>>
> The EU is pressing it's newest member to cut budget deficits and reform the administration. But this election leaves none of the parties with a clear mandate for pushing through painful changes. And Croatian voters may be getting sick of all the wrangling.
Turnout plunging in comparison with the last election.
