Nino Raspudić from MOST said in his ironic comment that the former HRT director-general, Kazimir Bačić, who was released from custody after he was detained in late June on suspicion of corruption and influence peddling, should not worry as Šveb “is worthy of his predecessor”.

Katarina Peović of the Workers’ Front said that Šveb’s appointment “is an act of the private interests hacking the public ones.”

She said that Šveb was in the conflict of interest as he was a co-owner of a company whose interest was to be a direct competition to the HRT. She said that there were rumours that possibly he sold software programmes for HRT translators through another company.

Hrvoje Zekanović of the Sovereignists party said that Šveb should not be appointed, however he told other Opposition MPs that his party’s deputies did not intend to join them “in a circus” referring to the behaviour of some Opposition MPs who had lined up in front of the rostrum forcing the presiding chair to suspend the parliament’s session last week.

“We are the Opposition and we will try to topple the government of the HDZ and the SDSS but we are not for behaving like in a circus, we want to preserve the dignity of the parliament,” said Zekanović.
