STEPANAKERT, JUNE 27,  ARTSAKHPRESSWith 159 votes from 268 members of the EPP-dominated Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in Strasbourg, Pejcinovic Buric beat Belgian rival Didier Reynders.

In Zagreb, Pejčinović-Burić’s election is considered a real success, but it also causes a political headache for Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, as he has to choose a new FM ahead of Croatia’s EU Presidency due to start on 1 January 2020.
