Petrov: Either Oreskovic cabinet or snap vote

Deputy Prime Minister Bozo Petrov said on Wednesday there were two possible outcomes of the current government crisis -

"I am prepared to resign, should HDZ request that as a price for Oreskovic to remain as the prime minister,"Petrov, the Bridge party leader, told a news conference in the government headquarters.

Petrov called on the HDZ to withdraw its motion for Oreskovic's impeachment which is on the parliamentary agenda on Thursday, adding that the Conflict of Interest Commission's decision finding HDZ chief and Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Karamarko in a conflict of interest in the "Drimia" case" confirmed what his Bridge party insisted on.
