In Croatia, the Opposition (Croatian: Opozicija; Oporba) is all of the political parties represented in Parliament that are not a part of the Government supported by the parliamentary majority.

The Leader of the Opposition (Croatian: Vođa opozicije; Šef oporbe) is the unofficial title held by the leader of the largest party of the opposition. Usually it is the leader of one of the two major political parties in Croatia, the centre-right Croatian Democratic Union or the centre-left Social Democratic Party.
