Prime Minister Andrej Plenković - the leader of the ruling HDZ - chaired an internal party meeting in Karlovac on Tuesday afternoon to discuss, among other things, a cabinet reshuffle. 

Media has speculated on the move since the arrest last month of former construction minister Darko Horvat on suspicion of abuse of office in his previous role as economy minister.

Plenković confirmed after the meeting that the entire HDZ leadership gave him absolute support in any eventual reshuffle of cabinet ministers in his government.

Although he did not comment on specific names or ministries, Plenković said a reshuffle would give his government the freshness and strength it needs to finish out the two-and-a-half years remaining on their current mandate.

Media speculation has focused on changes within the ministries of Economy and Sustainable Development, EU funds and Regional Develpment, and Labour, as well as Deputy Prime Minister Boris Milošević.

It was reported that the reshuffle could take place ahead of the Easter Holidays.
