Drago Prgomet returns to HDZ

The header of the political party Croatian Initiative for Dialogue (HRID), Drago Prgomet, confirmed for Hina on Tuesday he had decided to accept the invitation of Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) chief Andrej Plenkovic to return to the HDZ which he left over disagreement with the policy of former HDZ president Tomislav Karamarko.

"The invitation to return to the HDZ and Andrej Plenkovic's first moves were a clear sign that the party is going back to the position which I have been advocating through my work so far. To the position of the people's party which will bring together, which will respect diversity and in which dialogue will be a tool in the political fight," Prgomet said.

"This is a moment for us to make a turnaround," Prgomet said.

Asked if his name would be on election slates, given speculation that the HDZ would like to see him run in the Slavonia region or in Zagreb, Prgomet said that the decision on his place on the election slate would be made by the HDZ presidency.

He added that a large number of members of the HRID party would join the HDZ.
