ZAGREB, April 19, 2020 – The Homeland Movement party leader Miroslav Škoro on Saturday criticised the government’s measures to contain COVID-19 as “an economic motorway towards the Middle Ages”.
He said that the measures imposed to curb the spread of the infection could “thwart the future of our children for ever.”
“Epidemiologists cannot be the only measure for everything that now happens,” this famous pop singer and businessman-turned-politician says in his Facebook video message.
If things do not start going back to normal next two weeks in a sensible manner, the country will collapse, the International Monetary Fund will come and our family silver will be sold off, Škoro warns, adding that the current developments are an attempt to rehabilitate the failed Socialist system.
In this context he accused the current government of making use of the containment measures for their political scores and for imposing surveillance of citizens.
He criticised all the government in Croatia since the 2000s for having failed to prepare the country for emergency situations such as the current one.
In this context he underscored that the state budget was too big and not development-oriented.
Škoro, who finished third in the last presidential elections, insists that the situation marked by the coronavirus epidemic should not be an excuse for not conducting reforms and calls for the introduction of e-voting and voting by post in elections.
