Croatia nationalists edge to victory

Croatia's centre-right HDZ party won Sunday's snap elections by 61 seats against a socialist opposition bloc on 54. The previous government, where HDZ was the main party, fell in a conflict of interest affair. It did not deliver on reforms and stoked anti-Serb nationalism. Andrej Plenkovic, the new HDZ leader, has promised a "Europe oriented government". The HDZ is expected to join up with Most, a centrist party, in parliament.
