ZAGREB (Reuters) - Croatia's center-left opposition bloc won a majority in a parliamentary election on Sunday, according to preliminary official results, with some 40 percent of votes counted, the state electoral commission said.

The 'Kukuriku' bloc won 79 seats in the 151-seat parliament compared with 48 for the ruling conservative HDZ, clinching a strong mandate to revive the former Yugoslav republic's flagging economy before it joins the European Union in 2013.
