Dalija Orešković has been making some rather bold statements of late, first in regard to HDZ and Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, and now towards Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 3rd of November, 2018, her blunt and to the point comments towards the Croatian president have continued.
“The very fact that she tries to suit the feelings and the sentiments of the population clearly shows where her empathy lies, it’s often populist when it comes to showing a warm face. It’s a warm face, it’s just a mask,” stated Dalija Orešković rather bluntly.
Orešković was a guest of N1 television where she talked about her political plans, as well as about President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, towards whom she was extremely critical once again.
She first commented on her decision to not go to Marrakech, Morocco, where the measures for legal migration are being adopted.
“I’m not that captured [by it], for me, this is yet another example of the uncovering of the faces of the president,” sye stated.
She also commented on Kolinda’s attack on the Croatian Government, referring to an interview with President Grabar-Kitarović in which criticised the government for the lack of reforms.
She placed emphasis on the fact that the president, though lacking the power, does have moral authority.
“The president has the strongest voice in the country and that can create a certain atmosphere. The atmosphere created by Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović in recent years is colouring the country in black,” Orešković openly said.
Orešković attributes the fact that Grabar-Kitarović continues to do so well in the polls to very well-designed political marketing.
“Smile, share some pictures, get some good marketing which brings you closer to the everyday lives and the feelings of citizens, behind that lies no serious work, or what a president should be doing” concluded Orešković in a rather cutting statement.
