ZAGREB, December 1, 2019 – Economist Dejan Kovač, who is running for president as an independent candidate with the support of the HSLS party, on Sunday delivered to the State Election Commission over 16,000 signatures backing his candidacy and said that, unlike most of the other candidates, he did not advocate policies of division but of unity.

Speaking to Hina, Kovač said the emphasis in his campaign was on civil liberties.

“History teaches us that the price of freedom is high and that we have to fight for it, whether civil, political or economic freedom… It’s high time all Croatian citizens united under one flag, the Croatian flag. We have no other homeland.”

Kovač urged all citizens to vote in the presidential election “because on December 22 begins the struggle for Croatian democracy in which the only weapon is their vote.”

HSLS president Dario Hrebak said, “We want to fight for a Croatia of knowledge and education, not of clientelism and corruption. We will strongly advocate a productive Croatia, not a bureaucratic Croatia.”

He said they first and foremost advocated transparency in the management of public resources.
