    (ANSAmed) - ZAGREB, OCTOBER 2 - The president of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic, on Wednesday confirmed she is officially running for a second mandate in presidential elections scheduled in December.

    Although allegations that she would be running again had been reported for months, Kitarovic on Wednesday officially confirmed this in front of militants of the conservative Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) of Premier Andrej Plenkovic, a party that fully backs her re-election.

    In her message, she repeated the main points on her agenda: patriotism, defending traditional families and a strong position of the country in central Europe.

    So far Kitarovic comes first in all polls ahead of her two main rivals, former Social Democratic Premier Zoran Milanovic and singer Miroslav Skoro, a member of the nationalist right.
