Describing herself as the “perfect choice for President of the Republic of Croatia” Karabatic will face tough opposition from incumbent Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, 51, who has enjoyed her own share of international fame.

Many of Karabatic’s policy ideas appear to be rather progressive in nature. While she believes that “marijuana has a healing effect on people,” she acknowledges that her proposed abortion legislation might prove divisive, but claims she is not afraid to stand by her convictions.
