The new, tenth parliamentary assembly was sworn in on Wednesday, only seventeen days after the parliamentary elections.
The HDZ's Gordan Jandroković was voted in almost unanimously to a second mandate as Parliament Speaker, making him the first speaker to hold two consecutive terms. Of the five Deputy Speakers of Parliament three are from the parliamentary majority, Željko Reiner and Ante Sanader from the HDZ and Italian Minority MP Furio Radin. The two deputy speakers from the opposition are Rajko Ostojić from the SDP and Miroslav Škoro from the Homeland Movement.
MPs are expected to convene for a debate on the proposed new government on Thursday, with the new government of Prime Minister-designate Andrej Plenković scheduled to be approved by the end of the week.
The formality was held under strict epidemiological measures and for the first time in Croatian history, without the country's president, as Zoran Milanović opted to not attend.
