Opposition chief says Croatia is without government

Social Democratic Party (SDP) leader Zoran Milanovic said on Saturday that Croatia currently had no government which he found to be worrisome.

During his visit to the coastal town of Crikvenica where the SDP leadership held a meeting, Milanovic said that "Croatia has no government and no authorities, which worries us."

Asked by reporters about the SDP tactics for response to this situation, Milanovic said that "the SDP is not in the government" and they were observing what was going on.

"People know how we did our job, we were a good government. This (incumbent government) is not a government. We are waiting, unfortunately, the entire country is on hold," said Milanovic, who served as the prime minister  from late December 2011 until January 2016.

Asked whether there were any plans for the establishment of a new government with the SDP and the Bridge party being its components, he said that no contacts had been made for this purpose.
