"Will there be new elections? New elections can be called only if certain parties don't want to do the job," Petrov told the press in Omis where he took part in a ceremony marking the day of this southern Croatian town.

"I hope that other political stakeholders realised that Bridge is not here to be a political pretty face, but we came here to do the job and this is our only interest in this government, if this is not done, then new elections can be called," Petrov said.
