Peović to Advocate Demilitarisation, Exit from NATO

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, November 22, 2019 – The presidential candidate of the Workers’ Front party and the Socialist Workers’ Party (SRP), Katarina Peović, said on Friday that if she won the presidential election, she would be a completely different president than the HDZ’s Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović and would advocate demilitarisation and Croatia’s exit from NATO.

“I will push for radical changes in the interest of the national majority, including protection of available and free health care and education, demilitarisation, a reduction of investments in the military, the withdrawal of Croatian troops from international military missions, and ultimately, Croatia’s exit from NATO,” Peović said at the launch of a campaign to collect citizens’ signatures for her candidacy in downtown Zagreb.

The Workers’ Front and the SRP want a better and more just society, which is what a majority of people in Croatia also want, and that means that we need radical changes, protection of education, healthcare, housing and food, she said.

“Privatisation, plunder and ownership transformation have put us in a situation in which we have to defend our basic needs. They cannot be defended within the framework in which we live today. Radical changes are necessary, which is why we have joined in these elections,” Peović said, noting that her rivals advocated only cosmetic changes and keeping the country on the current course.

Even though presidential powers mostly concern protocol, Peović said that the conduct of the incumbent president bore witness to the importance of appointing to that position a person who advocates the basic needs of the majority.

Apart from Zagreb, Peović will be collecting citizens’ signatures for her candidacy in Split, Pula and Rijeka as well as in Makarska, Varaždin, Samobor and Sisak.
