Croatia President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarevic will run for a second five-year term on behalf of her ruling party, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, who also heads the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), said on Tuesday.

Plenkovic confirmed Kitarevic’s candidacy for the job after she informally announced it to local media on Monday, state news agency Hina reported.

Kitarevic’s current term will expire on Feb. 19, 2020 and the government is expected to call for the election at least 30 day before.
