Hrelja Leaves GLAS Caucus to Continue as Independent in Parliament

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, August 19, 2019 – The leader of the Croatian Pensioners’ Party (HSU) Silvano Hrelja on Monday confirmed to Hina that he was leaving the Glas caucus and would join the parliamentary group of independent MPs because he believes that in that way he will be more visible regarding issues concerning pensions, health and labour relations.

Asked about his moving away from the Amsterdam coalition, Hrelja said that such a decision has been made and that that coalition was the only possibility to participate in the European parliamentary election and that he believes all parties should participate at elections even though HSU did not consider that election to be the most crucial.

We need to participate at all elections if we want to develop a party infrastructure, Hrelja said, adding that they are aware of the Amsterdam coalition’s capacities.

“As such we are returning to our old flock, from which we never departed and that is the coalition agreement with SDP (Social Democratic Party), and we will work together and try to find a way out of the current Croatian situation,” he said.

I am spending a lot of time with SDP members and trying to create a common platform and our cooperation is excellent. We have supported the same presidential candidate and that’s that,” he said.
