Zoran Milanovic

Zoran Milanovic was born in Zagreb in 1966. After finishing high school for administration and the judiciary, Mr. Milanovic graduated from the Faculty of Law as an excellent student.

 He got his first job at the Zagreb Commercial court and in 1993 he started working for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A year later he joined an OSCE peacekeeping mission in war-torn Azerbaijan, in the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region. In 1996 he became an adviser in the Croatian mission to the EU and NATO in Brussels, and two years later he got his Masters Degree in EU law from a Brussels university. 

As an SDP member, in 2004 he renounced his position as an assistant minister of foreign affairs and became a member of the newly founded SDP’s Executive Committee as well as the International Secretary in charge of contacts with other political parties. In early September 2006 he became SDP’s coordinator for the 4th constituency and on the 10th extraordinary convention held on 2 June 2007, Zoran Milanovic was elected president of the SDP.

On 10 May 2008, he was confirmed as SDP leader for a four-year mandate with a large majority of votes. Since the general elections of 2011, he is the Prime Minister of Croatia.
