Tudjman Junior

From AP:

The son of the late Croatian President Franjo Tudjman has announced he will run for the post in early 2010.

Miroslav Tudjman, 62 -- who was head of Croatia's intelligence service during his father's presidency -- said late Monday he would enter the elections expected in January as an independent candidate.

Tudjman, the spitting image of his father, has been associated with conservative and right-wing politicians, and has often criticized the current government's Western-oriented policies.
