HDZ Campaign Turns from European to National(istic) Issues

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 22, 2019 – Speaking at a Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) rally on the campaign trail in Split on Tuesday evening, Prime Minister and party leader Andrej Plenković said that members of the HDZ party were the greatest sovereigntists.

In his speech, Plenković underscored that President Franjo Tuđman, the HDZ and the Croatian people accomplished the Croatian sovereignty in 1990, 1991, 1992 and during the 1991-1995 Homeland Defence War.

He said that the present-day Croatia had been created by Democrat Christians who honoured Christian values.

During the rally which the HDZ held in the second biggest Croatian city ahead of the 26 May elections for the European Parliament, Plenković said that HDZ was aware of the Christian values and Christian roots.

“It is essential given that in the 1950s Democratic-Christian politicians from the family of the European People’s Party (EPP) made Europe the greatest peace and development project such as it is nowadays.”

He warned that some of the candidates vying for the EP elections are people who would like to dismantle the European project and who believe that someone else would build Pelješac Bridge, roads, railways and reconstruct airports, or build an LNG terminal.

Defence Minister Damir Krstičević said the EP elections would be actually choosing between those who carry out development projects and those who give false promises.

The top candidate of the HDZ slate, Karlo Ressler, said that people should not be deluded by those who offered bleak prospects.
