Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, December 14, 2019 – The presidential candidate of the Workers’ Front and the Socialist Workers’ Party (SRP), Katarina Peović, said during a walkabout in the northern Adriatic city of Pula on Saturday that the needs of all people could be satisfied only by the 21st century democratic Socialism.

“During the ongoing election campaign, all the other presidential candidates have given a more or less similar statement that it only takes to stamp out and eradicate corruption and let the free market operate,” Peović said, stressing that unlike other candidates, she believed that the free market was a big problem.

The Workers’ Front and Peović believe that after 30 years the concept of free market should be re-examined and that solutions should be offered that would improve the status of Croatians as workers and human beings.

“Ask residents of Pula what they think about the free market in the context of developments with the (ailing) Uljanik shipyard,” she said.

Commenting on a decision by the High Misdemeanour Court that singer Marko Perković Thompson’s salute “For the homeland ready” at the start of his song “Bojna Čavoglave” (The Čavoglave Battalion) does not constitute unlawful conduct, Peović said that the salute, used by the authorities of the World War II Nazi-allied Independent State of Croatia, should definitely be outlawed because “it was used for criminal purposes.”

“Interpretations that the salute comes from an opera or the like are fabrications. ‘For the homeland ready’ should be banned very clearly and explicitly,” she said.
