Croatians are voting for a new president they hope will lead them into the European Union.
Ivo Josipovic, a law professor and classical music composer, led in the first round of elections with 32 per cent of the vote, which was double the number of votes received by Milan Bandic, the mayor of Zagreb.
The presidential election comes at an important time in Croatia's history since they are close to completing a long-cherished ambition of joining the European Union.
