Croatia within Yugoslavia 1980-1991

In 1990 the first multiparty elections were held. The HDZ, headed by Franjo Tudjman, an ex-Communist converted to nationalist, emerged victorious. Meanwhile, the Yugoslav presidency was, in violation of the constitution, not handed over to moderate Croat politician Stipe Mesic. Croatia declared independence in 1991.
