It was agreed that a cabinet meeting will be held in Čakovec on July 18.

Posavec stated that the he would present the government with prepared projects that he expects will receive support from the national level.” Each county prefect needs to cooperate with each government and any burden a political may have must not impact that cooperation. This is not the first time that the cabinet has met in Čakovec. The cabinet meets in cities throughout Croatia and it was time it was held in Čakovec again. It would have been better if it had of been earlier but there is no reason why our requests not to be endorsed on July 18,” Posavec said.
Posavec, who was the top candidate of the Croatian People’s Party (HNS) slate for the recent parliamentary elections, said that the HNS would consider the election performance next weekend in the resort of Sveti Martin na Muri. The party did not pass the 5% of the election threshold.
He told the N1 commercial broadcaster that the ruling coalition consisting of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) and his party could remain in power until the end of this term, however, he believes that the coalition has been detrimental to the HNS.
