Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, October 1, 2019 – President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović will officially announce that she is running for a second term as president on Wednesday.

Zoltan Kabok, spokesman for the president’s campaign team, on Tuesday invited the media to attend “the president’s address and official announcement of her candidacy for a new term” at noon on Wednesday.

Media has been speculating and expecting Grabar-Kitarović to announce her candidacy for some time now.

Her campaign office told Hina that in her address Grabar-Kitarović will say why she is running for another term and that she will announce her election platform in the next few weeks.

No party officials or government representatives will attend the president’s address tomorrow because she is still not officially the candidate of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) even though the HDZ has confirmed that she is their candidate.

According to the HDZ statute, the HDZ National Council decides on a party candidate in a presidential election at the recommendation of the party presidency.

The party leadership will be present when Grabar-Kitarović announces her election platform for another five-year term in office.
