This is a list of Presidents of Croatia. Historically, the heads of state of Croatia as a constituent country of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia were referred to as "Presidents".[citation needed] Prior to 1974, Croatia's head of state was the speaker of the Croatian parliament.[citation needed] The Parliament of Croatia was known as the People's Assembly (Narodna Skupština) 1945-1953, and then re-assumed its old name, the Sabor, in 1953 ("Sabor" is translated "Parliament" in the table). Since the Christmas Constitution, the President of the Republic (Predsjednik) is directly elected to a five-year term and is limited to a maximum of two terms. Since the changes to the Constitution of Croatia in 2001, the President of the Republic of Croatia cannot be a member of any political party.[1] He or she can be elected as a member of a party, but once elected must resign from membership in any political party.
