Croatia has been holding elections, with counting now well underway. An early exit poll showed the two main parties, the ruling Social Democrats and the Conservative opposition set to take an equal share of parliamentary seats.
The conservative Croatian Democratic Union is set to win parliamentary elections, according to a partial vote count from the state election commission. Previously, exit polls indicated a tie with the ruling coalition.
The ruling Social Democratic Party and the conservative Croatian Democratic Union are neck and neck after polls close in Croatia, reports say. The politicians clashed on the response to the refugee wave.
The right-wing governing coalition had collapsed about 8 months after being elected. The coalition was torn apart by right-wing ideology and a corruption scandal involving a deputy prime minister.
Preliminary results from Croatia's snap election suggest that both major parties have failed to gain a clear majority. That prospect could lead to months of negotiations to form a government.
