ZAGREB, June 13, 2019 – Živi Zid president Ivan Vilibor Sinčić on Thursday told those gloating that this opposition party was over that it was not and that it would come out even stronger, and he also presented the party’s new MPs – Damjan Vučelić and Snježana Sabolek.
Speaking to the press, Sinčić commented on the recent departure of Ivan Pernar and Branimir Bunjac from the party, saying “the truth will be known in a very short time.”
Sinčić said he was willing to forget the ugly words and insults against the party, its members and himself. “As someone who has been in politics eight years and is the party’s president, I must guard Živi Zid’s honour.”
He said the party would continue to work because citizens wanted it to. He called on everyone wishing to join the party to do so, and presented Vučelić and Sabolek as the members who will replace him and his wife Vladimira Palfi Sinčić in parliament.
Recently Sinčić said that he would become one of the 12 Croatian MEPs, after his party won only one seat in the EP election on 26 May. A decision on who is entitled to fill that seat seemed to be the main bone of contention between him and the party’s two MPs, Pernar and Bunjac, who left Živi Zid in the meantime.
