Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 30, 2019 – The presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Zoran Milanović, said in Supetar on the southern island of Brač on Saturday that the presidential race would be long and tough, adding that he expected that, as the candidate of modern and progressive Croatia, he would enter a second round of voting.

Speaking to the press, Milanović said he had come to Supetar at the invitation of his friends to attend Town Day festivities. He said he was taking the pulse of the people and listening to what people were saying.

Milanović declined to comment on current political affairs, including property-related scandals involving Public Administration Minister Lovro Kuščević, saying that he was not expected to do so under the constitution anyway. However, he said that he would fight for a Croatia free of “thievery and nepotism”.

Regarding the possible departure of Prime Minister Andrej Plenković to take the office of European Council president, Milanović said that, unlike his rivals, he was in favour of Croatian people being appointed to senior positions in international organisations abroad because that was good for Croatia.

On the subject of Croatia’s relations with Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milanović said that these were two neighbouring countries and “if they are weak, Croatia can get nothing, but can only lose.”
