Grabar-Kitarovic: PM-designate must be nominated by Wednesday evening

President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic said on Tuesday evening that she would hold the last, fifth round of consultations on Wednesday afternoon, after which the Prime Minister-designate would be nominated, otherwise she would appoint an interim non-partisan government and call an early election.

Addressing the public after the fourth round of consultations, the President said that representatives of the Patriotic Coalition and Bridge had informed her of the fact that "together they have the majority support of 78 elected members of Parliament, as proved by their signatures."

"Therefore tomorrow afternoon I will hold the fifth, last round of consultations. By tomorrow evening, we will either have a Prime Minister-designate or I will appoint an interim non-partisan government and call early parliamentary elections," Grabar-Kitarovic said.
