Politics and activism
Tomašić was politically active in the Croatian Canadian community, and became a member of the Croatian Party of Rights as early as 1990. After settling in Croatia with her family in 1998, she began a more earnest involvement in politics, became a vice-president of the Croatian Party of Rights, and entered the 2003 election in the top spot on her party's list in the 10th electoral unit, which gave her a seat in the Parliament. Her term ended in January 2008.
In 2009 Tomašić left the Croatian Party of Rights over disagreements with its president, Anto Đapić. She accused Đapić of "betraying the party" and of using his position for personal gain.
In September 2009 she was elected president of a new party, Croatian Party of Rights dr. Ante Starčević.
To the general public in Croatia, Tomašić is best known as an anti-drug activist. Aside from helping the addicts and participating in public discussions about drug abuse, she publicly denounced known drug dealers, relying mostly on information received from the addicts' parents. She received a number of death threats in 2006, and in 2007 it was reported that organized crime groups had been planning her assassination. By that time, she had started carrying a pistol for self-defense, and her family received police protection.
In December 2010 Tomašić received the Order of Stjepan Radić in recognition of her efforts in fighting the organized crime. In March 2013, she made headlines for allegedly declaring that "Croatia is for Croats" while "everyone else is a guest"., which she disputed and tried to clarify.
In the european election of 14 April 2013, Tomašić was elected in the European Parliament, placing 6th in the candidates list of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ). On 1 July 2013, after Croatia joins the European Union, she took office as Member of the European Parliament (MEP).
