“In future I will work a little differently, more open and with the assistance of digital platforms that will enable every citizen to present their priorities,” said Pavičić Vukičević presenting her election platform based on five topics: Zagreb’s reconstruction for the 21 century, welfare rights, direct citizens’ participation in decision-making, resolving the problem of waste and resolving traffic congestion.
Pavičić Vukičević, who currently serves as the acting mayor after the death of mayor Milan Bandić, rejected claims that there were too many people employed in the city’s administration saying that there are 3.8 employees per 1,000 Zagreb residents whereas in Vienna, for example there are 16 employees per 1,00 residents.
She underscored that the city’s finances are stable which has been confirmed by credit rating agencies that have reaffirmed the city’s credit rating.
She presented her candidates for deputy mayors – Otto Barić and Ivica Lovrić.
Barić said he would focus on reconstruction and brown field investments while Lovrić will focus on education, culture and sports.
