The second Cabinet of Prime Minister Ivo Sanader was announced on 12 January 2008. It was the 10th cabinet of Croatia, and its term ended on 6 July 2009 when Jadranka Kosor formed the 11th cabinet.

Changes from the Cabinet of Ivo Sanader I[edit]

  • In order to accommodate coalition partners, the number of Deputy Prime ministers grew to four from two in the previous cabinet (with two posts held by HDZ members Kosor and Polančec and the additional two by Adlešič of HSLS and Uzelac of SDSS).
  • The Ministry of Agriculture, Forest and Water Management was split into the Ministry of Regional Development, Forestry and Water Management was established (headed by Petar Čobanković (HDZ) who also headed the old ministry), and Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development (which was taken over by Božidar Pankretić of HSS). The latter ministry was formed mainly to accommodate HSS demands which ran on a platform seeking to stimulate re-development of rural areas.
  • After five years, Ministry of Tourism was separated from what was earlier Ministry of the Sea, Tourism, Transport and Development and Damir Bajs (HSS) was appointed new Minister of Tourism. The Ministry of Tourism had earlier existed from 1990 to 1992 under PMs Mesić, Manolić and Gregurić and from 1993 to 2003 under Valentić, Mateša and Račan.
