Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, July 6, 2019 – Opposition Social Democratic Party (SDP) leader Davor Bernardić said on Saturday that the party’s success in the recent EU election would pave the way to its victory in parliamentary elections.

Bernardić was speaking at a session of the SDP Main Committee which was expected to confirm former prime minister and SDP leader Zoran Milanovic’s candidacy for President of the Republic.

“The ruling structures must not be corrupt. Corruption is eating away at the Croatian society. Corruption has stolen the future of many young people and the dignity of the elderly,” said Bernardic.

“People are leaving the country because of mistrust in state institutions, the inefficiency of state administration and the lack of reforms… We must restore trust in the judiciary and make it more efficient and independent from any form of political or any other influence. We plan to do that with a set of anti-corruption laws because it must not be considered a normal thing for a senior state official to have an expensive Mercedes parked in their front yard or to own luxury villas that they most certainly could not have afforded with their salary,” he said.

Bernardić called for stricter public procurement rules, stricter control of declarations of assets, transparent financing of election campaigns, and freeing the Conflict of Interest Commission of pressure of any king, notably political.

SDP has the man who will restore dignity and integrity of institution of president

Bernardić said this was only a small part of what had to be done to restore voters’ trust in state institutions.

“One of the more important institutions for Croatian citizens is the president of the state, whose dignity and integrity must be restored and the SDP has the man who can do it and who will win – Zoran Milanovic,” Bernardić said.
