ZAGREB, Sept 16, 2020 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said in parliament on Wednesday that President Zoran Milanovic was engaging in activism against the national COVID-19 response team.

Commenting on Milanovic’s statement that the Constitutional Court got cold feet when it decided that all decisions made by the COVID-19 team were in line with the Constitution, except for a Sunday trading ban, Plenkovic said: “What do you think, do those who voted against have an opposed political agenda, engaging in some sort of activism, while the others acted in line with the law and Constitution, including the judges?”.

He then answered affirmatively when asked if he believed that President Milanovic was the activist leading attacks on the COVID-19 team, adding that “a few people have stirred up the debate and this is one of the activist groups that have been identified.”

“Everything is clear,” he said when asked if the president and the constitutional court judges who voted against the court’s decision were connected.

“I have no idea what inspired those judges to vote against… I couldn’t care less. You have Article 16 of the Constitution, the law was adopted, the government formed the team, the team made decisions, the coronavirus was defeated in May, we organised elections before the second wave, the tourist season was 50% of the projections, and I find that good,” he said.

“Those who say that the Constitutional Court got cold feet, why didn’t they address the court themselves,” he said, adding that he was referring to Milanovic.
