Zagreb, 28th April 2020 – In the work of Association so far, many politicians reached out to us with questions, suggestions, and support. The Glas Poduzetnika Association minimized any direct relations with any political option because we do not want anyone collecting their political points through this initiative.
Of course, everyone is invited to support our clear agenda and all demands that take us to Croatia 2.0. We’ve been communicating from the beginning, despite the wishes of some of our members, that direct involvement in politics is not in our plans and that we are a supra-party organization that cares about the welfare of the entire private sector, entrepreneurs and their employees. It is for this reason that we believe that we have a very high homogeneity of our members. We wanted to assess what their political potential is in terms of the preponderance they could have in the polls by voting for the party or parties that publicly accept and support or implement our demands. We asked them, “Do you regularly participate in polls?”
These are their answers:
The most significant number of them—82% regularly go to the elections, and a reasonable assumption is that they will be active in the upcoming elections. The second group of almost 13% of entrepreneurs is very interesting. They say that until now, they did not vote regularly, but this time they will participate. About 5% of them do not go to the polls, and some because they do not believe that they can change anything.
Entrepreneur’s voting potential
I regularly go to the polls
I did not go to the polls regularly until now, but I will participate in the upcoming elections
I don’t believe I can change anything with my participation/vote
I do not go to the polls
Given these results, it is clear that entrepreneurs will play an essential role in the upcoming elections. Partly because of the relatively passive voters so far, and another part because of the highly motivated majority that this time votes directly for their survival, through parties that will have sufficient will and power to meet the demands of the Glas Poduzetnika Association—lower taxes, less parafiscal charges, a more efficient judicial system and a clear path to rapid digitalization of the state.
