Activist for CHF-pegged loan holders establishes political party

Goran Aleksic, who won a seat in the new 151-seat Croatian parliament as a candidate on the Human Shield slate in the September 11 snap election, told Hina on Tuesday that he had recently established a new political party called "Snaga" which means "Strength" in the Croatian language.

Aleksic, known for his engagement in efforts to protect rights of borrowers who took Swiss franc-pegged loans, said that as a parliamentary deputy, he would raise awareness of the strength and importance of civic activism.
