Sovereignists MP Marijan Pavliček told the press after the founding assembly that this was “a good start” of a coming together on the right wing, “three political groups plus a large chunk of the membership and presidency of the Independents for Croatia.”
He voiced confidence that in the next year or two they would become the strongest right-wing political group in the country.
Responding to questions, Pavliček said they wanted to be a modern, right wing alternative to the ruling elite.
Asked if he expected former Homeland Movement leader Miroslav Škoro to join the party, he said the Sovereignists had been the first to support his presidential candidacy.
He said a large part of Škoro’s many sympathisers would join the Sovereignists and that his joining the party’s caucus would enable them to focus more on “enterprise, the economy and such.”
Pavliček said he was confident some Homeland Movement members would join the Sovereignists.
Another Sovereignists MP, Hrvoje Zekanović, said Škoro’s joining their caucus was “a huge reinforcement,” recalling that Škoro won over 450,000 votes in the last presidential election.
Asked if there would be changes in the party’s caucus, Pavliček said there would not for now.
