BELGRADE, November 9. /TASS/. The Patriotic Coalition opposition party is winning at Sunday’s parliamentary election in Croatia. Though only 88.23% of votes have been counted, and the results can only be considered as preliminary for now, it has become obvious that the Coalition’s main rivals — Social Democrats — will not be able to bridge the gap and catch up with the leaders.

According to State Electoral Commission, the Patriotic Coalition will get 60 mandates in the 151-seat parliament, while the Social Democratic coalition can only get 55 seats.

The third place is occupied by the Most party which has been described as the "main sensation" of the parliamentary elections by political scientists. The Most party, founded at the end of 2012, will get 19 mandates. The political platform of the party includes economic liberalism and consists mostly of young people who did not take active part in politics before but showed themselves in other spheres suck as civil initiatives. The party is led by Bozo Petrov.

Voter turnout at the elections was rather high and exceeded the numbers of last parliamentary elections in 2011. According to preliminary reports, the turnout stood at around 60.14%

State Electoral Commission chairman Branko Hrvatin said that the final results of the vote will be announced today at 1pm local time.
