HDZ junior partners against idea of SDSS in reshuffled cabinet

Croatian Party of Rights Ante Starcevic (HSP AS) MP Pero Coric said on Thursday he would not agree to any government reshuffle other than the one with the two ruling parties -

I see no stable majority without Bridge and although I have been portrayed as Bridge's main critic, and despite the fact that even today I claim that indolence has brought us where we are right now, clearly I see that tensions are being defused and I expect the situation to head towards that direction," Coric said.

He said the leaders must show responsibility.

Coric refuted in the strongest terms the possibility of reshuffling the government together with the SDSS, saying that the HSP AS found this absolutely unacceptable.

A parliamentary deputy of the Hrast party, which is part of the HDZ-led Patriot Coalition, Ladislav Ilcic, on Thursday supported the impeachment of Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic and both of his deputies Tomislav Karamarko and Bozo Petrov, underscoring that this is a condition for the survival of the government.

Ilicic found to be unacceptable to have the SDSS lawmaker Milorad Pupovac as a new Depty PM in a reshuffled government.
