Ivica Račan

He was ill for a while, and it was expected, but this morning Ivica Račan passed away. He may have done less than what could have been hoped, but his influence was generally positive and hopeful, and in contrast with many of his contemporaries on the political scene, he seemed to be a decent person. The competition to take over leadership of his party has already begun, and if it produces a new generation of leaders who are oriented toward the future, that will be a unique legacy.

One of the few politicians who didn't personally profit from public office leaves a political legacy of tolerance and pragmatism which should help guide the SDP through the process of selecting a new leader.
