Pupovac says SDSS will have 3 candidates on minority slate

Leaders of the Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS) in the party headquarters in the eastern Croatian town of Vukovar on Sunday are deciding about candidates on slates for early parliamentary election and according to party sources the SDSS will have three candidates on the minority slate.

"In this election we will have three candidates on the minority slate. Unlike the last election, we will not run in any other constituencies. We expect the SDSS to have three seats in the next parliament as well," SDSS vice president Milorad Pupovac said.

Speaking about expectations from the election, Pupovac said the SDSS, together with other ethnic minority representatives, would decide after the election which political option it would support.

"We will try to exert some influence so that the best and most stable government can be formed. (...) Experimenting with the government should most definitely be behind us, because that way Croatia had lost too much time. Repeating that experiment will cause great damage to Croatia and it will be a big loss for all political parties," he added.

Commenting on announcements and media speculation about a possibility of forming the so-called grand coalition between the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) and the Social Democratic Party (SDP),  Pupovac claims those rumours were started by the Bridge party to scare voters and to score political points.

"At this moment it is difficult to predict what a future majority would look like," Pupovac said.
