Women in a Croatian village have seized power from their lazy menfolk in local elections.

They won all seven seats on the local council after deciding they were sick of seeing the village men doing nothing for the community.
Merica Bogdan, one of the seven women who was elected to serve on the local council, told local media: "The time has come for women to rule.

"Men will never have power here again. We have agreed to let our men be in our beds, but never in politics again."
She added that despite having a tiny budget to work with the all-female council had already arranged for a municipal cleaning service, put up and decorated a Christmas tree in the village square and begun a project to repair the spire on the village church.
