Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic (46-year-old) is a new president Republic of Croatia. With 99.51% of ballots counted, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, a former foreign minister and ambassador to the U.S., was ahead, with 50.43% of the vote against incumbent Ivo Josipovic (57-year-old) with 49.57%, the electoral commission said Sunday.
