The fifth assembly of the Croatian Parliament (Croatian: Peti saziv Hrvatskog sabora) was constituted on December 22, 2003 with mandates divived to 152 representatives after the November 23, 2003 elections.

Parliamentary officials[edit]

The president of the parliament (often also called the speaker in English) was Vladimir Šeks (HDZ).

Vicepresidents of the parliament were:

The secretary was Josip Sesar.

Composition of the 5th Sabor[edit]

The following is the list parties represented in the 5th Sabor. Note that the Croatian law does not require candidates featured in party election lists to be members of the party, i.e. individuals can still run as independents on election lists submitted by political parties. Once elected, they are automatically considered members of that party's parliamentary caucus and normally vote together with the party even though they often continue to be formally independent.

Thus the table below includes data sorted by party caucuses. Apart from the three independents elected as representatives of various ethnic minorities (Jene Adam, Nikola Mak and Furio Radin), the December 2003 party figures also include seven other independents who were elected via party lists:

Changes[edit]

Note that a number of MPs who are high-ranking members of parties in the ruling coalition were subsequently appointed to various ministerial and governmental positions, while others continued to serve as city mayors. In such cases they are required by Croatian law to put their parliamentary mandate on hiatus for the duration of their other term of office and in the meantime their seats are then taken by a party-appointed replacement MP. Those replacements are not documented here unless they resulted in a change in party balance.
