Pupovac: We Mustn’t Settle only for EU Membership

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 23, 2019 – The leader of the Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS) and its top candidate for the European Parliament, Milorad Pupovac, said at the main campaign rally in Glina on Wednesday that Croatia must not settle only for EU membership but success which, as a member state, it would generate for its citizens and for Europe, underlining that the Serb people in Croatia needed success.

He said the people of the Banija region needed success too so they could say that “after years of failure and suffering, with their votes, they can achieve success for Serbs in Croatia and for Croatia.”

“We want a civilised Croatia, a Croatia in which the voice of intolerance won’t dominate, a Croatia in which no voices which spread the message of fear or hatred will dominate. Croatia will then resemble the country it was before joining the European Union, a country of Croatian and European ideals,” said Pupovac.

Serbs in Croatia see the EU as a success project which depends on how much each member state puts into that project, he added.

Non-party candidate from slate 24 Dejan Jović said the candidates on the slate advocated a united and increasingly strong Europe.

“Our wish is for Europe to spread to all those countries which wish to become EU member states. We don’t want any solid walls between the countries in the EU and those outside, and we believe that’s in the interest of Croatia, the Western Balkans and the EU,” he said.
