European Council on foreign policy

The European Union has been trying for a long time to synchronise the foreign policies of its 27 Member States into a common one. After the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the Union is getting closer to the achievement of this goal, because the Treaty has allowed the creation of the European External Affairs Service, which is almost entirely developed. In order to put additional weight on the importance of a common EU foreign policy, the president of the European Council Herman van Rompuy organises a special European Council (the meeting of the leaders of the Member States), dedicated to foreign policy. The main issues on the agenda of the first of its kind foreign policy Council will be: EU's relations with the Asian countries, the situation in Pakistan after the disastrous floods there, the G20 summit in Seoul in November and the transatlantic relations.

The first is whether the current mayor, who was accused many times of corruption but never indicted, will win a sixth term in a row. To replace him are competing three women - the candidate of the Liberals Anka Mrak Taritas, supported also by the SDP, the independent Sandra Svaljek (ex-deputy of Bandic) and the far right candidate Bruna Esih. The outcome of the latter holds the key to the question whether a new far right party will be formed in Croatia and whether this will lead to the a split in the HDZ
