Tomislav Koncevski new leader of Labour Party

Member of Parliament Tomislav Koncevski was elected the new president of the Croatian Labour Party at an electoral convention on Sunday.

Nansi Tireli, the party's president until yesterday, lost to Koncevski in a second election round.

Kriz municipality head Marko Magdic and Veliko Trgovisce municipality head Robert Greblicki were elected party vice-presidents.

The Labour Party was established in 2010 and it won six parliamentary seats in elections held in December 2011. The party fared badly in elections for the European Parliament in 2014, which prompted then party leader Dragutin Lesar to resign. The Labour Party is now in the Opposition and has three representatives in the parliament, elected on the slate of the Croatia Is Growing coalition.
