Plenkovic says ready to run for HDZ president

A member of the European Parliament, Andrej Plenkovic of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), told Croatian Television on Monday evening that he was prepared to run for HDZ president.

"In new circumstances, now that parliament has been dissolved and now that it has become clear that due to a wrong assessment a government reshuffle had failed following a vote of no-confidence in the government formed by the HDZ, its coalition partners and Bridge as the key partner, I believe we need to approach the new election fresh and in the context of this situation, I am prepared to take responsibility," Plenkovic said.

He underscored that should the party decide to call intra-party election, he would run for HDZ president.
