The Sabor of Croatia (Croatian: Hrvatski Sabor) is the unicameral legislative body of the Croatian Ban Republic. Led by the Ban, the Sabor controls the domestic budget of the nation and generally sets domestic policy.
The 150 members are elected by district every five years. After this election, the members assemble in Wrocłow to elect the Ban. The Ban is then sworn into office by the Voivode, and then he swears in all other members.
The Sabor meets on a weekly basis in general, on a daily basis (Excluding Sunday and holidays) when there is an issue which needs continuated discussion and daily (Including Sunday and holidays) during special circumstances (war, death of the Ban, etc.)
|1889 Sabor elections|
|Previous Ban||None||Elected Ban||Juraj|
The Sabor elections of 1889 were the first elections of a real, rather than a virtual Sabor. This meant a lot of confusion regarding the whole voting system, but nonetheless a high turnout was seen. The Transitional Communists were expected to win with ease, seeing as how they were a major reason why the Ban Republic was even created. Dmitar Zvonimir IV. Trpimirović, commonly known as the Last King of Croatia due to the fact that he was Archvoivode while also being a member of the former royal dynasty, was inaugural holder and led the ceremony during which Juraj Božidar Tripalo became Ban. The ceremony was quite peculiar, because "King" Zvonimir proclaimed May you not have any kings after me, similarly to his great ancestor Zvonimir I. who said a similar phrase, but meant it as a curse, rather than a blessing. Josip Ratimir Draganić soon left the Communist party after the elections to join the Transitional Communists, a decision that will benefit him greatly in the next few years.
