Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, September 28, 2019 – The Istrian Democratic Party (IDS) will support the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate and former prime minister Zoran Milanović in the forthcoming presidential election, the IDS Council decided by a majority of votes at a meeting on Friday evening.

IDS leader Boris Miletić said that Milanovic offered the strongest guarantees for the victory of the progressive Croatia in the presidential election.

“Voters will be choosing between a regressive and a progressive Croatia. With its support, the IDS wishes once again to make a strong contribution to Croatia truly becoming a normal, pro-European, open and modern country,” Miletić said.

“Croatia’s entry into the Schengen zone, which would eliminate the border within Istria, the removal of the barbed-wire fence on the border with Slovenia, and better road and rail connections with the whole of Europe are issues of vital importance to Istria, which the future President of the Republic can and should influence. Zoran Milanović has given convincing and credible guarantees that he will protect the interests of Istria and its civilisational, economic and cultural specificities,” the IDS leader said.

He concluded by saying that the presidential election could mark “the beginning of the end of bigoted, retrograde nationalism and insane populism which has degraded the image of Croatia in the world and put our country at the bottom of Europe.”
