Social Democratic candidate Zoran Milanovic won the second round of Croatia’s presidential election Sunday, beating conservative incumbent President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
“Welcome to the castle of victory. Politics is the work of love and patience,” said Milanovic.
He thanked everyone who supported and did not support his candidacy, speaking at the party building in the capital, Zagreb.
“People are different. In this context, I will try to be the voice of everyone without hurting anyone. I will respect the differences,” said Milanovic.
According to unofficial results announced by the State Election Commission (DIP), nearly all of the votes have been counted.
