Zoran Milanović Biography

HRV: 

 

Zoran Milanović (Zagreb, 30. listopada 1966.), hrvatski političar, pravnik, drugi predsjednik SDP-a, predsjednik Vlade Republike Hrvatske.

 

Politička karijera

Početci u SDP-u

Godine 1999. učlanjuje se u SDP. Nakon pobjede koalicije prevođene SDP-om na izborima 2000. godine, povjerena mu je komunikacija s NATO-om. Tri godine kasnije postaje pomoćnik ministra vanjskih poslova Tonina Picule. Nakon pobjede HDZ-a na izborima 2003. odlazi s mjesta pomoćnika.

 

Godine 2004. izabran je u Glavni odbor SDP-a, a dvije godine kasnije nakratko postaje glasnogovornink SDP-a. Početkom mjeseca rujna 2006. godine izabran je za koordinatora rada SDP-a u četvrtoj izbornoj jedinici.

 

Predsjednik stranke

Nakon smrti Ivice Račana, na sjednici Glavnoga odbora 21. travnja prvi najavljuje kandidaturu za predsjednika stranke. Objava kandidature dočekana je ovacijama. Prevladavajuće mišljenje u osvit izborne konvencije bilo je kako Račan, u tekstu svoje ostavke neposredno pred smrt, sintagmom o 'novim snagama' zapravo daje podršku Milanoviću u kandidaturi za predsjednika. Na 10. izvanrednoj izbornoj konvenciji Milanović je u drugom krugu pobjedio Željku Antunović sa 150 glasova prednosti i time postao drugi predsjednik SDP-a u povijesti.

 

Zahvaljujući njegovom izboru, rejting SDP-a u istraživanjima je doživio rast i mnogi analitičar su predviđali uvjerljivu pobjedu lijeve opcije na predstojećim parlamentarnim izborima. Međutim, HDZ pobjeđuje na izborima u zimu 2007. godine, što su neki komentatori pripisali nedostatku iskustva kod Milanovića. Godine 2008. pobjeđuje Davorka Vidovića i Dragana Kovačevića u borbi za mjesto predsjednika SDP-a, te nastavlja svoj mandat.

ENG:

 

Zoran Milanović (born 30 October 1966) is the Prime Minister of Croatia and leader of the Social Democratic Party of Croatia (SDP), the largest centre-left political party in Croatia.

 

After graduating from the Zagreb Law School, Milanović started working in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He served as counselor at the Croatian Mission to the European Union and NATO in Brussels from 1996 to 1999. That same year he joined the Social Democratic Party. In 1998 he earned his Master's degree in European Union law at the Flemish University in Brussels and was assistant Foreign Minister of the Republic of Croatia for political multilateral affairs in 2003.

 

He was the coordinator of the Social Democrats in the 4th constituency in 2006 and was elected party leader in June 2007, following the death of longtime leader and former Prime Minister Ivica Račan, running on a reformist platform. After endorsing Ljubo Jurčić as the party's official candidate for Prime Minister, Milanović set out his goal of making SDP the largest political party in Parliament. In the 2007 general election the Social Democrats came in second and were unable to form a governing majority. Despite losing the election, he was reelected party leader in 2008 and served as Leader of the Opposition until the next election cycle. In 2011, Milanović initiated the formation of the Kukuriku coalition, uniting four major centre-left political parties in the country. The coalition won the 2011 parliamentary election in a landslide, with SDP becoming the strongest party in Parliament. Milanović became Prime Minister in December 2011, after Parliament approved his cabinet by a large majority.

 

The main agenda of his Premiership has been revitalizing the economy, with the most focus being on reforming government administration and bureaucracy, lowering the public debt and reforming the tax code. Other major initiatives include finishing the ratification process and overseeing Croatia's entry to the EU and liberalizing the country's artificial insemination law. A self-described liberal, Milanović is a strong supporter of gender equality and LGBT equal rights.
