13th Anniversary Of Franjo Tuđman’s Death Marked In Croatia

Members of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) political party will today lay wreaths and light candles at the grave site of the first Croatian President, the late Franjo Tuđman.

A mass will be held in Tuđman’s honour as the 13th anniversary of his death is marked. A tribute to the first President of Croatia will be lead also by a delegation of the Croatian Peasant Party (HSS) and by Zagreb’s Mayor Milan Bandic.

Tuđman became President in 1990 as HDZ won the first post-communist party elections and a year later he proclaimed Croatian independence. He remained in power until his death on 10 December 1999 at the age of 77.
