Oreskovic arrives at President's office for PM-designate mandate

Tihomir Oreskovic arrived at President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic's office along with the heads of the Patriotic Coalition and the Bridge party on Wednesday to request the President to appoint him as prime minister-designate if he can prove that he has the support of a majority of elected parliamentarians.

According to the Constitution, the President appoints a prime minister-designate based on the support of a majority of elected MPs and consultations.

Oreskovic needs to provide at least 76 signatures to prove to the President that he enjoys the support of the majority of elected members of parliament in order to be appointed prime minister-designate.

Bridge leader Bozo Petrov and the leader of the Patriotic Coalition, Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) president Tomislav Karamarko, on Tuesday brought the President 78 signatures as evidence of enjoying the support of a parliamentary majority. Today they announced that Oreskovic would be the prime minister-designate.
