Conservatives win Croatian election

Complete results of Croatia's snap election have confirmed a clear victory for the ruling conservatives, who now face a tough task of forming a coalition government.

The results reported by Croatia's state electoral commission show that the Croatian Democratic Union won 61 seats in the 151-member parliament, while the left-leaning People's Coalition won 54.

The third-placed Most, or Bridge, party is a likely kingmaker in the future coalition government with 13 seats. The biggest surprise is Zivi Zid, or Human Shield group, which won eight seats.

The snap vote was called after the previous coalition government collapsed in June, triggering the biggest political turmoil in the country since it joined the EU in 2013.
