Miroslav Škoro Takes Aim at Croatia’s Politicians and Relics of Socialism

Lauren Simmonds

In Croatia, one forgotten parasitic socialist relic has remained, and that is politicians holidaying in state residences, at least according to one of Croatia’s singers-turned-presidential candidates, Miroslav Škoro.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 11th of August, 2019, the presidential candidate pointed out that Croatia’s leading people within the government enjoy a handsome income and that they can pay for holidays anywhere, and that they don’t need to be doing so in state residences.

Presidential candidate Miroslav Škoro made the post on Facebook, aiming for the summer holidays of some of country’s leading people, who often take such breaks in state residences.

”Over recent days, we’ve heard that the leaders of the state, the president and the prime minister, are on holiday. Where? She’s at the Peneda military facility in Brijuni, and he’s at the Costabella state villa in Opatija. They’re both paying for their holidays at a privileged price,” wrote Škoro, in a post which began with his aim to put an end to the practice of politicians spending their holidays in state residences should he be elected.

”Everyone in Croatia wishes they could afford to spend their holidays in Brijuni and Opatija for themselves and their families at the prices and in the conditions under which our politicians get to, but that’s just their privilege. I will put an end to this practice,” wrote Škoro.

He noted that the leading people of the state have handsome enough incomes for them to be able to pay normally for holidays anywhere at all, and most importantly of all – at the regular rates that everyone else has to pay.

”State residences should be placed on the market and this relic of socialism of holidaying in state facilities should be abolished,” concluded Škoro, in a Facebook post that will surely earn him respect from the public.
