Preliminary results released by the State Election Commission (DIP) after Sunday's local elections show that six Croatian counties elected their prefects in the first round of voting, with candidates winning more than 50 percent of the votes.

Of those six prefects, four are representatives of the ruling centre-right Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ): Antonija Jozic of the Pozega-Slavonia County, Igor Andrilovic of the Virovitica-Podravina County, Ivan Anusic of the Osijek-Baranja County and Danijel Marusic of the Slavonski-Brod Posavina County.

Social Democrat (SDP) official Zeljko Kolar was reelected prefect of the Krapina-Zagorje County, while Matija Posavec, an independent, was reelected as the head of Medjimurje County.

The remaining 14 counties will elect their prefects in the runoffs on May 30.
