Petrov: Party membership no longer prerequisite for employment

The Bridge party leader, Bozo Petrov, on Saturday accused the system which he said was tailored by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), adding that Bridge would make sure that membership in one of those two major parties would no longer be a prerequisite to get a job.

"Such a system is hefty and tailored to the needs of those two parties. This must be changed and Bridge has started doing it," Petrov said in the norther town of Cakovec where he presented his party's agenda.

He said that in the run-up to the 11 September parliamentary election, Bridge candidates would tour the country, talk with voters and inform them of Bridge plans how to change the situation in Croatia for the better.
