CROATIA / EU : 15 April UPDATE: Voters Select 12 EU MPs...For 1st Time.


     For the first time...voters in Croatia selected their 12 representatives to the EU.
     In July...the 4.2 million Balkan nation officially joins the troubled union as its 28th member...after a 10 year quest.
     As predicted...voter turnout was small.
     The new EU reps will be well paid...but will only serve for 1 year.
     Like much of the Balkans and the Eurozone...for the 4th year...Croatia is mired in recession.
