Petrov hopes some reform goals to be attained in 2016

The Bridge party leader Bozo Petrov has written in his New Year message that he believes that in 2016 some of the reform goals will be accomplished and that first steps in the fight against corruption will be made, urging the Croatian society to demonstrate optimism and audacity.

"We have made a huge job in the last year. In order for our goals to be achieved, we will need your support and assistance. We believe that already in 2016 we will attain a part of the reform goals and make first steps in the fight against corruption. This will not be easy, but we are ready for challenges. We wish our society let optimism and audacity for the turn for the better run away with it," Petrov wrote in the message posted on the Facebook account on Friday.

"Thank your for taking part in building the Croatia we want," he added.
