Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 16, 2019 – Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović said on Saturday that there was too much talk about elections and election campaigning, while Croatia should be concentrated on vital issues such as creating new jobs, keeping young people in the country and development of Croatian cities.

During her visit to Rijeka on the occasion of the Day of Saint Vitus, the patron saint of that Adriatic seaport, the president was asked by the press whether it would be now an opportune moment for her to announce in her hometown whether she would run for her second term.

Grabar-Kitarović, whose five-year presidential term expires in February 2020, answered “All in good time”. “Let me perform my duty. We should not talk about elections six months,” the president said.

“I think that we too much talk about elections and election campaigns in Croatia. Let us be focused on the vital issues: creating new jobs, keeping the youth in Croatia, and developing Rijeka and other our cities. If we keep incessantly thinking of campaigns, we do not have enough time to do our job.”

The president then extended her best wishes to Rijeka residents for that local holiday, and joined a procession which takes place in the town centre on the occasion of Saint Vitus’ Day, celebrated on 15 June.
