ZAGREB, July 14, 2020 – The Bridge party said on Tuesday that it would turn down Prime Minister’s invitation for a meeting with that opposition party, explaining that it believes that only a joint meeting of Plenkovic with all opposition parliamentary parties would have some sense.
Although the Bridge party was initially ready to forget all political differences when it comes to Croatia’s interests, and therefore it had accepted the invitation for a meeting in the government, now that party believes “that there is no willingness to ensure a joint and constructive meeting with the whole Opposition.”
Bridge writes on its Facebook that separate meetings with each of the Opposition parties would not make any sense and therefore this party is against such talks.
Bridge says that it has already presented its platform’s economic plank to the public and that the implementation requires courage and political will.
The party goes on to say that it expects the new government to present its platform in the parliament and to organise a joint meeting with the Opposition.
Last week, Plenkovic, who is to be the prime minister-designate after the results of the July 5 elections, announced meetings with representatives of parliamentary parties so as to reach a consensus on key issues for the country.
A majority of opposition parties seem to be against separate meetings.
