Posavec Apologises for HNS’s Decision to Enter into Coalition with HDZ

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, July 14, 2019 – Međimurje County Prefect Matija Posavec, who is an official of the Croatian People’s Party (HNS), a junior partner in the ruling coalition, on Sunday said he was sorry for the party’s decision to enter the ruling coalition with the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) in 2017.

During his interview with the HTV public broadcaster, Posavec said that he would be the first from the HNS to extend apologies over that coalition.

He then apologised to the HNS “member, sympathisers and the general public for what the HNS did two years ago. That was neither courageous nor responsible.” Posavec referred to the fact that two years ago, when the Bridge party left the ruling coalition, the HNS, which was until then one of minor opposition parties, switched sides and joined the government.

He believes that the HNS needs a new course and expresses readiness to replace HNS leader Ivan Vrdoljak at the helm of the party.

Posavec also insists that there is no longer any need for the HNS to remain in the ruling coalition as his party accomplished the goal it set two years ago: the introduction of the curriculum reform in schools.

He believes that early parliamentary elections should be held this year “due to all scandals in the government”, and told the presenter of the show that he did not fear that he would be kicked out of the HNS.

In the case of his eviction, he said he would continue performing his duties of the county prefect as an independent politician.
