>> Back to the polls for the second time in a year. Croats voting in parliamentary elections on Sunday to choose yet another new government. It follows a vote of no confidence which ousted Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic after just five months in office. His government was a fragile coalition lacking a clear mandate to push through restructuring.
Those reforms being demanded by European authorities. The EU's newest member is also one of its weakest economies. Public debt in Croatia amounts to 85% of the country's GDP and it spends 3.5% of GDP on interest payments alone. And yet, all parties promise lower taxes for the people of Croatia funded by expected higher growth.
This election is unlikely to yield a clear majority. An alliance lead by the Social Democratic Party, which lost power in last year's election, is predicted to win the most seats by a very small margin. Its conservative rival, the Croatian Democratic Union, may need to seek support yet again from the center-right Most Party.
But their last alliance resulted in the government collapse leading to Sunday's election.
