Members of the Bridge (MOST) party met in the ethno-village of Plitvica Selo on Saturday to discuss their next steps in negotiations with the two largest coalitions on the formation of the new government.
The party's leader, Bozo Petrov, briefly told the press on Saturday evening that the party would continue to insist on the necessary reforms in further negotiations with the centre-left and centre-right coalitions led by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) respectively.
"We are glad that voters showed how important reforms are to them," Petrov said, adding that he hoped that in the next week or two the two coalitions would accept that" what is important is not their positions but the common good."
"For the sake of the common good it is very important for us to have a two-thirds majority in parliament, because certain changes will require constitutional amendments," he stressed.
The meeting was held from 3.30pm until 8.20pm without a break and without the presence of the media, and was due to resume on Sunday.
Petrov said that 17 of the party's 18 elected parliamentary deputies attended the meeting and that the one deputy could not attend because of other commitments.
When asked whether the government would be formed next week, one of the Bridge members, Ivan Lovrinovic, said: "We will form it in good time."
