Stjepan Mesic(HNS) Originally part of the HDZ Mesic had a long history in politics going back to the old Communist Yugoslavia, his charisma and Pacifist approach to politics has made him the most popular politician for many years in a row. Should he become Prime Minister he will aim at improving Croatian Relations with the world and alligning with the direct neighbors on at least Economic levels. Ivo Sanader(HDZ) Former Minister of Health under the Phoenix Empire and one of the more liberal parts of the HDZ. As a very diplomatic person he aims at International Cooperation with all nations even those who could be considered enemies. However he is supportive of an increase of power of the Armed Forces to the point where they could legally overthrow an Official. Zoran Milanović(SDP) A true fighter of the revolution having been imprisoned as soon as the age of 21. He is a progressive Politician with some Isolationist policies and promotes Central Planning. Regarding the Military he wants an effective but not too expensive force. Anto Đapić(HSP) The conservative of the candidates promoting an isolationist policy while maintaining a strong Army. On economic levels he promotes a Free Market System but wishes for some Government intervention. He is perhaps the least popular candidate.
