Vlaho Orepić Announces Candidacy for President

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, July 11, 2019 – Leader of the New Politics party Vlaho Orepić on Thursday officially announced his candidacy for the presidential election later in the year, claiming that Croatia needs new politics that will introduce order, establish stability and confidence in the institution of the president and other government institutions and enable citizens a dignified and safe life.

MP Orepić, who entered parliament with the MOST party slate and later left it to set up the New Politics party in late 2018, presented himself today with the statement that he was not an entertainer.

“I am not an entertainer, I’m not a singer nor party actor nor a reality show politician. I am a citizen, an athlete, soldier and above all, a Croatian defender from the very first day of the Homeland War. My candidacy is not backed by any party or business interests or structure…I believe that Croatia can and must be a better society,” Orepić told a press conference.

He said that his agenda is the Croatian Constitution and not any party statute or business plan. “I aim to preserve a dignified and secure life for all Croatian citizens. My aim is order,” Orepić said.

He said that parties that have been in power until now had without any shame exploited presidential candidacies for their own internal party showdowns or various consultant-lobbying and business projects.

Orepić was the interior minister at the start of the term of the current government and left that post when the MOST Party came at loggerheads with the ruling Croatian Democratic Union and departed from the ruling majority.
