Petrov says Bridge terminating negotiations with SDP coalition

Bridge reformist party leader Bozo Petrov said on Tuesday afternoon that his party would no longer negotiate with the Social Democratic Party (SDP)-led "Croatia Is Growing" coalition, accusing the SDP of holding in the last 48 hours individual talks with some of the elected Bridge members on support to SDP chief Zoran Milanovic for the Prime Minister-Designate.

"We are consistent, we have said clearly that this is too much," Petrov said adding that the Bridge leadership was currently conducting a meeting on the future moves.

While giving this statement, Petrov was visibly upset about reported attempts by the SDP to hold talks with individual Bridge members in parallel with the talks of the two sides on a future cabinet.
