The outgoing SDP president was photographed in the capital of Kosovo.

Former Prime Minister and the outgoing SDP president Zoran Milanović has disappeared from the Croatian political life. He was seen in Parliament just once, when he came in for a few minutes to take the oath as a newly-elected MP, but has since not appeared neither there nor at any other public or political event, reports on October 23, 2016.

There are rumours that he is trying to land a job as a consultant to one of the countries which are trying to enter the European Union. He reportedly visited Albanian capital Tirana where he offered his services. Most recently, he was photographed in Kosovo’s capital Priština, which he visited together with his party colleague and former Defence Minister Ante Kotromanović. They were seen in a company of former Kosovo Prime Minister Agim Ceku.

Immediately after he decided to retire as SDP president and withdraw from politics, rumours started circulating about his potential plans for the future. His former colleagues claim they know nothing about his plans, except to say that “Zoran has had enough”. He is often criticized in the media because he is not coming to Parliament, although he is still receiving salary as an MP.

On Thursday evening, he was photographed in Priština by Gazeta Express, which noted that it was not known what the trio talked about that evening.

The Croatian media earlier reported that Milanović, as part of a wider team of people, would provide consulting services to the countries in this part of Europe that are in various stages of accession to the European Union. Earlier this month, Novi List reported that Milanović was in Tirana to determine whether Albanian authorities were interested in advice which he could give them as a former prime minister of a member state of the European Union. Among other countries which Milanović could work for are, reportedly, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Macedonia.

Interestingly, ten years ago Ceku used consulting services of one other SDP member, Neven Mimica, who is now the European Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development.
