Croatia: Ruling party ousts ex-PM for criticism

Croatia's ruling party has kicked out the country's former premier after he criticized his successor and announced a return to politics.
Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor said Monday her conservative Croatian Democratic Party ousted Ivo Sanader because he was harming the party.
Sanader had led the party since 2000 and was prime minister since 2003. He abruptly quit politics on July 1.
He announced a returnon Sunday, saying the party lacks leadership. The move threatens to cause a rift within the ruling party and rock the government.
Kosor has meanwhile gained support for authorizing prosecution of high-level corruption, which many Croatians believe was sanctioned by Sanader.
