Human Shield remains steadfast, won't enter any coalitions

A member of the Human Shield party, Ivan Pernar, commented on the first exit polls in Sunday's snap election according to which the "Only Option" coalition consisting of the Human Shield, the Franak association, the "Let's Change Croatia" coalition and the Youth Action, has won seven seats in parliament, underscoring that they had expected more seats and that they would remain steadfast and not enter into a coalition with any other party.

"We expected a little more - eight seats, plus or minus two. We have won seven. I would have preferred eight or ten, but it isn't over yet," Pernar said.

He added that they remained determined not to form a coalition with any party. "It would be better to go to another election than to serve a puppet government," he said.
