ZAGREB, Aug 17, 2020 – Social Democratic Party (SDP) parliamentarian, Pedja Grbin, who has recently announced his aspirations to become the next party president, on Monday presented his document with guidelines for SDP’s recovery after its defeat in the Croatian parliamentary elections.

Grbin, who posted the document on social media networks, says that “unfortunately, little has changed for the better in the last four years.”

“The document I have posted contains my ideas, guidelines, and suggestions for the recovery of the SDP,” he said on his Facebook profile.

The SDP will hold internal elections on 26 September. As of this Monday, candidates will have 15 days to submit their candidacies for the party’s president, the presidency and main committee. Those running for the president will need to collect at least 500 signatures from SDP members in support of their bid.

Grbin, who has explicitly stated his intention to take the helm of the party, says that #newSDP must put an emphasis on creating contents, policies and programmes.

He advocates changes in the organisation of this Opposition party, calling for making the party’s bodies smaller and easy to operate.

The promotion within the party must be based on the results and achievements in elections and not on interpersonal likes and preferences within the party, Grbin says.

He says that he supports the one member- one vote method, however, warns against manipulation of OMOV when the membership fee is set at a mere one kune for many party members who are then reduced to the role of voting for somebody.

Grbin is therefore in favour of checking the register of party members and the revision and updating of the membership roster.
