Before the vote, Marijan Pavliček (Sovereignists) reiterated that Đurđević was unacceptable because she was “ideologically colored, an exponent of liberal-left politics and a toy in President Zoran Milanović’s hands.”

“There is no ideology about her. On the contrary, she is a professional who bothers all those who don’t want change,” said Krešo Beljak (People’s Party).

Peđa Grbin (Social Democrats) said there were two groups, one that felt that everything in Croatia’s judiciary was all right and wanted to change things.

Dražen Bošnjaković (ruling HDZ) said Đurđević did not apply for the post, that she broke the law and that it was therefore unacceptable to appoint her to the Supreme Court.

Stephen Bartulica (Homeland Movement) said Đurđević was “not the best candidate.”

Milorad Pupovac (Independent Democratic Serb Party) said it was a pity the procedure had been contaminated from the start and that it was not only a matter of a good candidate but the election atmosphere.

Urša Raukar Gamulin (Green-Left Coalition) said one should elect based on objective and professional criteria and that short-term political interests should be eliminated from such elections.

Marija Selak Raspudić (bridge) called everything a farce in which parliament was reduced to a worthless institution that should participate in a show whose outcome was predetermined.
