October 19, 2016 22:14

The Croatian parliament approved on Wednesday a new government led by the conservative HDZ party leader Andrej Plenkovic whose main task will be to boost growth and sort out fragile public finances in one of the weakest European Union economies.

The new government was formed by the HDZ and its junior centre-right reformist partner Most ("Bridge") after several weeks of negotiations following a Sept. 11 snap election.

The government got support of 91 out of 151 parliamentary deputies.
