From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jozo Radoš is a Croatian centre-left politician. During the Zagreb Crisis he was elected mayor, but not confirmed by President Franjo Tuđman. As such, he wasn't formally prepared for mayor duties and had to resign.

He was a member of the HSLS party which allied with SDP for the 2000 parliament elections which they won. Following this, Radoš became Croatian Minister of Defence in the government led by Ivica Račan.

During his mandate as minister, the military budget was severely cut as part of a late post-war demilitarization. Mandatory military service was also cut from 12 to 6 months. During his entire mandate, personnel cuts to the army were planned, but never implemented.

Following HSLS's leader Dražen Budiša's exit from the government, HSLS split into two factions, Radoš being a member of the dissident pro-government faction which would go on to create a party called Libra which Radoš became a president of. Despite his support for the government, Radoš previously resigned his post and was succeeded by SDP's Željka Antunović as minister.

Libra, along with Radoš, merged with the Croatian People's Party in 2005, since known as the Croatian People's Party – Liberal Democrats.
