European Parliament elections were held in Croatia for the first time on 14 April 2013 to elect twelve Members of the European Parliament.[1] The members will serve the remainder of the Parliament's 2009–2014 after Croatia enters the European Union on 1 July 2013. The country formed a single constituency, with members elected by proportional representation using open lists.[2][3]

Despite opinion polling predicting a decisive victory of the governing centre left SDP-led coalition, the centre right HDZ-led coalition won a razor-thin plurality of the vote.[4] The turnout of just 20.8% was the lowest turnout in a national election in modern Croatian history.[5]
