The election of the new Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) president will be held on July 17, following the one member-one vote principle, HDZ deputy chief Milijan Brkic said on Thursday, after a session of the HDZ National Council.

"The National Council has decided to hold an intra-party election on July 17, following the principle one member-one vote," Brkic told the press after the session. If necessary, a second election round will be held a week later.

Party members will elect only the party president and candidates for the position must, over the next ten days, collect 5,000 signatures of HDZ members supporting their candidacy.
