Ivan Turudić appointed the new State Attorney-General

Zagreb - The Croatian parliament on Wednesday elected Ivan Turudić the new State Attorney-General for a term of four years.

His appointment was supported by 78 deputies, while 60 voted against and two abstained.

Turudić will succeed Zlata Hrvoj Šipek, whose term ends in May.

Before the vote, the Opposition again strongly criticised Turudić's nomination for the post, calling on members of the parliamentary majority not to support him.

After the vote, SDP leader Peđa Grbin called for observing a minute's silence for the judiciary, noting that Turudić's appointment was the last nail in the coffin for the judiciary.
