Bridge: We continue to insist on reforms

The Bridge party said on Thursday that it would continue to insist on forming a reformist government and signing an agreement on cooperation in the reform process.

The main purpose of such an agreement will be to set out reforms that are to be implemented and to define time limits for their implementation and evaluation, the party said in a statement.

Bridge said that it had not unilaterally formed a coalition with any party. "We had been calling for a tripartite government until the end, but unfortunately that was not accepted and recognised as the best solution for Croatia," it said.

"A reformist government is now being put together by non-party Prime Minister-designate Tihomir Oreskovic, but it will not be based on a coalition between the Patriotic Coalition and Bridge but on a reform plan and agreement that will clearly define a time frame within which the changes and reforms need to be carried out," the statement said.

The party expressed its satisfaction with the appointment of Tihomir Oreskovic, a successful businessman, as Prime Minister-designate saying that he was a competent and non-party person.
