ZAGREB, March 31, 2019 – The Work and Solidarity Party of Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandić on Saturday marked the fourth anniversary of its establishment and presented its slate for the coming elections for the European Parliament, set for May 26.
Bandić said that the slate consisted of 11 reputable individuals from various walks of life, none of whom were members of his party, and that only Jelena Pavičić Vukičević, vice-president of the Solidarity and Work Party, was a party member.
He said that the final order of the candidates on the slate would be determined in the coming days.
“Of the 12 candidates on the Work and Solidarity Party slate, 11 are people who are very successful in their field of work, from tourism to economy and from architecture to biochemistry,” said Bandić.
He said that he was confident Croatian voters would notice this and called on them to take part in elections for the European Parliament.
“I believe that Croatia needs a change and that national interests should be represented in the European Parliament, that economic growth should be strengthened and that Croatia should be a partner to the EU to a greater extent.”
Asked how many seats he expected his slate to win, he said that voters would be the ones to decide.
