Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 25, 2019 – President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović said on Tuesday that she was not afraid of anybody’s candidacy for the presidential elections, whereas Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said that everybody could run for the presidency, but that the winner would be the incumbent president Grabar-Kitarović.

Asked by the press whether she feared that her “postponement ” in the formal announcement of her decision to run for the second term, considering also the candidacy announced by pop singer Miroslav Škoro, could diminish her chances, the president said: “I am not afraid of anything”.

Plenković also dismissed speculations that Škoro’s candidacy could affect the ratings of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ).

“The HDZ has its candidate. The party has the current president of the republic. The HDZ will win the presidential elections and I can’t see any problem,” the HDZ leader said adding that “this is a democracy in which all can stand in elections, but Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović will win”.

The president and the premier gave these statements after a wreath-laying ceremony at Mirogoj Cemetery on the occasion of Croatia’s Statehood Day, observed on 25 June.
