    Croatian media has not yet reported a reason for Sanader's decision, but he faced growing economic troubles, with the country's GDP falling 6.7 per cent in the first quarter - the biggest drop in 10 years.

    The conservative leader has led the government since 2003, winning a second term in November 2007.
