July 19, 2020 – The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) on Saturday said that the rhetoric used by Social Democrat official Peđa Grbin who had called HDZ members thieves “is futile rhetoric of marked by aggressive behavior and lies which the SDP used in the run-up to the parliamentary elections.”

Instead of presenting the SDP’s vision of the future or programs for the challenges which Croatia is faced with, Grbin is again trying to label HDZ members as “thieves”, resorting to the futile rhetoric of aggressive behavior and lies which the SDP kept promotion, including also during the election campaigning, HDZ said on its Facebook account after Grbin’s statements earlier on Saturday.

Peđa Grbin, who has been the only one to explicitly express his intention to take the helm of the SDP so far, since the SDP leader Davor Bernardić resigned due to the party’s poor election results, said on Saturday that he would support the Možemo! platform leader’s candidacy for Zagreb Mayor if that would mean Milan Bandić’s ouster. Grbin admitted that he saw no problem to support Tomislav Tomašević of the Možemo! platform as a joint mayoral candidate of several parties in the capital city, if that will mean the ouster of the current Mayor Milan Bandić whom he called “a thief” and if that will mean “that we will not let thieves from the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) succeed him (Bandić).”

HDZ says that this statement made by Grbin, who “is trying to introduce himself as a leader of the new SDP after that party’s election defeat” on 5 July, proves that nothing new could be expected from the SDP-led coalition. HDZ says that SDP representatives use false accusations about thieves only to disguise their own incompetence and lack of the party’s program and vision, which was the reason why the SDP “experienced one of the worst election results” in its history.
