Croatian Parliament's First Session Deadline Approaches Following Elections:

The first session of the Croatian Parliament is expected to take place no later than May 19, following the recent parliamentary elections. President Zoran Milanović could call the session earlier than the deadline, but time must be allotted for representatives to receive their invitations. The President's decision to call the session in advance was demonstrated during the 2020 elections when Parliament's first session was set for July 22.

The session's purpose is to establish which election participants have managed to gather at least 76 representatives to elect the Speaker of Parliament and constitute the Parliament. The State Election Commission (SEC) will announce the official election results once all legal remedies for voting rights protection have been exhausted. The announcement is expected on Monday in the "Narodne Novine" official gazette, coinciding with the SEC president Radovan Dobronić's handover of results to President Milanović.

Slovenian Judoka Kaja Kajzer Reaches Finals, Secures Medal:

Kaja Kajzer, representing Slovenia, showcased her skills in the European judo championships. She defeated Bolgarka Snežana Gramatik in the initial rounds and young Austrian Laura Kallinger. Kajzer then progressed to the quarterfinals, defeating European silver medalist Marica Perišić from Serbia in overtime.

In the semifinals, Kajzer faced German Pauline Starke and initially trailed in the match. However, she equalized in the second half and secured her place in the finals due to Starke's disqualification just before the end of the match. This victory guarantees Kajzer at least a silver medal in the tournament.
