Miroslav Škoro to Void His Ballot in Presidential Election Runoff

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, December 31, 2019 – Miroslav Škoro, who came in third in the first round of presidential elections on December 22, said that he would go to the polls in the January 5 runoff but that he would vote neither for Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović nor for the winner of the first round, Zoran Milanović, and would add candidate No. 3 on his ballot – his Croatian people – and circle that number.

“A lot of you have sent me messages and asked for advice on what to do and who to vote for in the second round. I can’t advise you on that because I believe that I don’t have the right to tell you what to do,” Škoro said in a video message on his Facebook wall, announcing that he would run in the next parliamentary elections.

The independent candidate, who won more than 460,000 votes in the first round of the presidential elections, said that he did not want to opt for the lesser evil or vote for the current system.

He called on his voters to go to the polls, exercise their right to vote and do what they think is right.

If Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović wins, nothing will change, he said. “Croatia will continue to be run by a clique of opportunists who invoke things sacred to the Croatian people until they are elected, after which they rule according to somebody else’s instructions, looking away from their own people, ignoring their protests and referendum initiatives.”

If Zoran Milanović wins, “the country will have as its president a man whose government has made us poor, seized our property, indebted us, made us emigrate and insulted us, a man who during this campaign, during which he has allegedly become normal, has said that he will not take part in the Vukovar memorial procession because there are no decent people in it,” Škoro said in his video message.
