Gustav Grozdan (b. July 8th, 2885) is the former Minister of Infrastructure & Transport of Greater Hulstria, serving from 2935 to 2952. Grozdan currently serves a ranking member of the Fascist Authority Party, sitting on the National Congress; Grozdan is also the former Chief Minister of Mitrania, serving from 2925 to 2931.
Gustav Grozdan was born on July 8th, 2885, to Michael and Elizabeth Grozdan in Traugott, Mitrania; Gustav was brought up in an aristocratic lifestyle and went to private schooling in Traugott. Gustav Grozdan after high school enrolled in a University in Mitrania and got a degree in architecture and business. Following his educational career, Gustav joined the Imperial Army under it's Air Corps branch, and became an engineer. Having an interest in politics, Grozdan became involved in local campaign efforts for conservative candidates, and eventually found his way to the Fascist Authority Party working under the Campaign & Election Council of the Crownland Committee of Mitrania for the FAP. Grozdan soon became a close ally of Bernhard Gutzsteiner, an influential Mitranian politician, and then Chief Minister of Mitrania; he went on to work as a close adviser to Gutzsteiner and became the chief operations organizer of the Campaign & Election Council under Gutzsteiner's request. Through this position, Gustav Grozdan himself became a powerful figure in Mitranian politics, and known throughout FAP circles in the Crownland; he was also able to associate himself with members of the commanding Roderick Family like Joseph Roderick II, who later in Grozdan's political life would tap him to become the party candidate for Infrastructure & Transport. In early 2924, Bernhard Gutzsteiner announced he wouldn't be seeking another term as the Chief Minister of Mitrania, leaving the seat open for the first time in over 20 years; Gutzsteiner confided in Gustav Grozdan and pushed for Grozdan to become the party candidate for the office in the upcoming 2925 general election; Gustav Grozdan accepted the offer and easily won the nomination in a party primary. Since Mitrania was a very strong conservative region, Gustav Grozdan was also able to easily capture the public's vote in May of 2925, becoming the new Chief Minister of Mitrania. As Chief Minister, Grozdan and the FAP pushed through several conservative reforms along with the Imperial Hulstrian Party, which the two parties enjoyed a large supermajority.
