Politička karijera

U politiku ozbiljnije ulazi 1991. kada biva izabran za predsjednika IDS-a. Od tada je neprekidno predsjednik te stranke. Posljednji puta potvrđen je aklamacijom 14. veljače 2010. kada mu počinje teći i šesti mandat na čelu stranke. Izabran je za saborskog zastupnika 1992., potom i 1995. i 2000. No, nakon tih izbora 2000., IDS ulazi u pobjedničku koaliciju SDP-a, HSLS-a i još nekoliko stranaka te Jakovčić ulazi u vladu i postaje ministar tadašnjeg novoformiranog Ministarstva europskih integracija. Nakon izlaska IDS-a iz vlade 2001., Jakovčić podnosi ostavku te se kandidira za istarskog župana. Pobjeđuje, a nove mandate osvaja i 2005. te na prvim neposrednim lokalnim izborima 2009. kada pobjeđuje u drugome krugu. Za vijećnika županijske skupštine izabran je 1993., 1997. i 2001. (kada postaje župan). Predsjednik je Jadranske euroregije od 2006. Od 2003. do 2007. bio je zamjenik predsjednika Skupštine Europskih regija u dva mandata. Također je član savjetodavnog odbora Instituta regija Europe. Sudjelovao je u nizu domaćih i međunarodnih konferencija iz područja demokracije, ljudskih i manjinskih prava, regionalizma, zaštite okoliša, slobode medija i gospodarstva.

ENG:

 

Ivan Jakovčić (born 15 November 1957 in Poreč) is a Croatian politician and current head (Croatian: Župan) of the Istria County in Croatia.

 

Political career

After finishing primary and secondary education in Poreč, Jakovčić graduated from the University of Zagreb Faculty of Foreign Trade in 1980. In the 1980s Jakovčić worked in exports and marketing divisions of the Istrian company Pazinka and after that became an entrepreneur and took part in investments in Austria and Croatia. In 1991 he entered politics and was elected chairman of the Istrian Democratic Assembly (IDS), an Istrian regional party.

 

He was elected to the Croatian Parliament five times, in the 1992, 1995 and 2000 elections. After the opposition won the 2000 elections IDS formed a coalition with the Social Democratic Party of Croatia (SDP) and several other parties, and Jakovčić was appointed minister of the newly established Ministry of European Integration.

 

However, when IDS decided to leave the ruling coalition in 2001 he resigned and ran in the local elections held the same year. After IDS won the local elections, Jakovčić became the head of the Istria County, position he still holds after being re-elected in 2005 and 2009.

 

Jakovčić is also the longest serving party chairman in modern Croatia, having been leader of IDS continuously since 1991. His sixth consecutive term as head of IDS was confirmed by acclamation at the party convention held on 14 February 2010.
