ZAGREB, June 6, 2020 – Prime Minister and HDZ president Andrej Plenkovic said in Pozega on Saturday that in the July 5 parliamentary election citizens would choose whether to vote for those who had ensured health, jobs and economic growth or groups which were an end in themselves.
He said over HRK 12 billion had been contracted as part of the government’s Slavonia Project.
“In the last campaign, we announced the Slavonia Project as a priority. Over HRK 12 billion has been contracted. We are realising projects. The government and the ministers are present in Slavonia. I think voters, having learned from the presidential election, will think carefully about who to vote for. The choice is whether you will go for those for whom you know who they are, who have ensured health, jobs, economic growth,” Plenkovic said in the Slavonian city of Pozega where he started his tour of eastern Croatia.
“Last night Fitch upheld Croatia’s credit rating. That means they trust us, they see resilience, know-how, and trust to return, with the economic recovery measures, to the previous level as soon as possible.”
Speaking of coronavirus, he said “Croatia took a very good position, which was no accident. The economic measures we provided were no accident. Specifically, more than 8,000 people in Pozega-Slavonia County received wages for March and April and will receive them for May solely because of this government’s political will and the way to find the money for that.”
“We are counting on the safe vote for those you can seriously count on in the next four years. You have those with whom you don’t know what you will get, those whose topics have nothing to do with the future,” Plenkovic said, adding that choosing those who were rational should not be too difficult, especially in Slavonia.
