Former Prime Minister Milanović Starts a Business

Total Croatia News

It seems that Zoran Milanović has decided what he will do in his life after politics.

Former Prime Minister and the outgoing SDP president Zoran Milanović confirmed his earlier announcement and last week entered the world of entrepreneurship. He founded a consultancy called EuroAlba Advisory which will, according to data from the Commercial Court Registry, provide advisory and consulting services. Milanović is the director and the sole founder of the company which is registered in Zagreb, reports on November 14, 2016.

After his defeat at the parliamentary elections in September, Milanović announced he would not run for another term as SDP president and that he would leave politics for a while, in order to, as he said, finally earn some serious money.

In this context, the most often mentioned possibility is that the former Croatian Prime Minister might become an advisor to Albania in its process towards the full membership in the European Union. Most recently, he was photographed in Kosovo’s capital Priština, which he visited together with his party colleague and former Defence Minister Ante Kotromanović. They were seen in a company of former Kosovo Prime Minister Agim Ceku.

Croatian media earlier reported that Milanović, as part of a wider team of people, would provide consulting services to countries in this part of Europe which are in various stages of accession to the European Union.

Milanović is still a member of Parliament and president of the SDP Parliamentary Group. However, he was seen in Parliament just once, when he came in for a few minutes in order to take the oath of office, which was necessary for him to officially become an MP and start receiving parliamentary salary. He has not been seen in public since. This has drawn criticism from the public and even from some prominent members of his own party, who have started to criticize him more often, which was unimaginable while he was still a full-time party president.

The first round of the elections for his successor as SDP president will take place on Sunday.
