Eight minority representatives in the new, tenth parliamentary assembly, met in the parliament building today, where they agreed to support the HDZ and Andrej Plenković in forming a new government. The representative for the Czech and Slovak minorities Vladimir Bilek: “Following comprehensive talks we decided to give our support the election winners, and in that way, once the official election results are published, provide Andrej Plenković the signatures needed to be able to request from the president a mandate for forming the new government.”

Meanwhile, the head of the Social-Liberal Party, Dario Hrebak, met with Plenković in the government building today, pledging his party's two seats in parliament in support of the future HDZ-led coalition government. As opposed to the minority MPs the HSLS feels that two seats in parliament do not constitue enough leverage to demand a ministerial post in the new government.

Negotiations on who will be named to head up which ministry, meaning who will stay on from the last government and who will be let go, are ongoing. However, one thing has become clear, and that is that there will be less ministries than before.
