ZAGREB, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- In the first poll following Croatia's presidential election, which was published on Sunday, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) would now receive more electoral votes than the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) at the elections.

The poll conducted by CRO Demoscop on a sample of 1,300 Croatian citizens showed that the SDP currently has the support of 27.8 percent of voters, while the HDZ has the support of 26.9 percent of voters.

After SDP candidate Zoran Milanovic's victory in the presidential election a week ago, for the first time during the tenure of the incumbent President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic and Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, the SDP has a poll advantage.

The popularity of the SDP increased by three percentage points compared to December last year, while the HDZ fell by 0.4 percentage point.

According to this poll, President-elect Milanovic is the most positive Croatian politician, with Plenkovic in second place.

The poll found that 13 percent of voters were undecided.

Parliamentary elections in Croatia are scheduled to take place in September or October this year.
