Bridge leader suggests nominating non-partisan PM-designate

The leader of the Bridge reformist party, Bozo Petrov, proposed on Monday that his party and two major coalitions jointly nominate a non-partisan prime minister-designate.

"The most important thing at this point is a consensus of all three sides on a non-partisan candidate jointly proposed by all the parties involved. After that we should agree on who will be the speaker of parliament, ministers, committee chairs and others, but the most important is this first step," Petrov said at a meeting of the leaders of the two largest coalitions, Zoran Milanovic of the centre-left Croatia Is Growing coalition and Tomislav Karamarko of the centre-right Patriotic Coalition.

Petrov called on the two leaders to state their views on the proposal.
