Bandic gives ultimatum to gov't to launch projects

The leader of the Bandic Milan 365 - Labour and Solidarity Party, Milan Bandic, on Saturday gave the ruling coalition three months to propose specific projects or his party would initiate a government reshuffle.

"Believe me, if over the next three months projects are not proposed or their implementation fails to proceed at an expected speed, we will be the first to initiate a reshuffle within the coalition. We can't wait any more. I know best at what pace we should be going. We have been leading half of Croatia for 16 years and we can't wait forever. Six months is the final deadline to show what to do, to prepare genuine projects for the balanced economic development of Croatia," Bandic said at a celebration of the first anniversary since the establishment of his party, held in Zagreb's Bundek Park.

Bandic, whose party is a member of the ruling coalition and who also serves as the Mayor of Zagreb, said that the City of Zagreb was offering its own projects together with "our government and the Republic of Croatia. We have been, we are and we remain a solution. We want a better Zagreb and a better Croatia."
