HDZ secretary general says party leadership expects Karamarko's resignation

The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) Secretary General, Domagoj Ivan Milosevic, said on Monday that most of the HDZ members expect party chief Tomislav Karamarko to resign.

"I don't know what Tomislav Karamarko will do tomorrow, but what I can say clearly is that I am not one of those publicly calling for resignations, but over the past several days many party members from all parts of Croatia have called me, members of the party presidency, the head committee and the absolutely dominant position is that we expect Mr Karamarko to resign," Milosevic told Nova TV.

Asked if it was possible for Karamarko to turn a deaf ear to those calls for resignation, Milosevic said he would like to believe that people on such high positions are responsible and that they understand the political moment and their own responsibility.

He reiterated the HDZ must start preparing for early parliamentary elections immediately.
