ORaH leader Mirela Holy resigns

The leader of the Sustainable Development of Croatia (ORaH) party, Mirela Holy, on December 7 resigned from the position of party president due to the party's poor result in the November 8 parliamentary election in which ORaH failed to win any seats in the parliament, the party said in a statement on Wednesday.

The green party's vice-presidents, Bozana Zadro and Davor Skrlec, too, tendered their resignations on December 7 and 8 respectively.

ORaH is now to hold a regular intra-party election, which is to coincide with an extraordinary election to be held due to the said resignations, within three months from the parliamentary election, after which the party will have a new leadership, party spokesman Dean Sarcevic said.
