This is a list of cabinets of Croatian government, the chief executive body of the Republic of Croatia.

Note that between 1990 and 2000 Croatia had a semi-presidential system and members of government, including Prime Ministers, were all directly appointed and removed by the President of Croatia, this post being held by Franjo Tu?man from 1990 to late 1999. During his two terms as president, Tu?man was also the chairman of the ruling conservative Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), with all Prime Ministers in this period also coming from his party's ranks.

Following Tu?man's death in December 1999 and the subsequent January 2000 general election, the new centre-left parliamentary majority led by Ivica Ra?an amended the Constitution of Croatia in November 2000 and introduced a parliamentary system, greatly reducing the President's executive powers. Therefore, Prime Ministers since Ra?an have usually been the leaders of parties (or coalition of parties) which held a parliament majority according to results of the general election. Meanwhile, the position of president of the Republic was made into a non-party post, which meant that Presidents who served after Tu?man (Stjepan Mesi? from 2000 to 2010, Ivo Josipovi? from 2010 to 2015 and Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovi? since 2015) "froze" or resigned their party memberships upon getting elected or taking office for the entire duration of their 5-year terms.

There have been 12 Prime Ministers since the introduction of a multi-party system via the 1990 general election and 14 governments headed by them. Since independence in June 1991, however, there have been 11 prime ministers and 13 governments (beginning with that of Josip Manoli?).

Nine Prime Ministers were members of the HDZ during their term in office, two were members of the SDP and one was not a member of any political party. To date two Prime Ministers (Ivica Ra?an and Ivo Sanader) have chaired more than one government.

The longest serving Prime Ministers to date have been Ivo Sanader, who held the post for 2,022 days between December 2003 and July 2009, followed by Zoran Milanovi? (1637 days from December 2011 until January 2016), Zlatko Mate?a (1,542 days from November 1995 to January 2000) and Ivica Ra?an (1,426 days from January 2000 to December 2003). The shortest serving Prime Minister was Stjepan Mesi? (86 days from May to August 1990).

To date the only Prime Minister to have been voted out of office by a motion of no confidence is Tihomir Ore?kovi?, on 16 June 2016. He also has the distinction of being the first non-partisan Prime Minister.
