SDSS claims has indication of attempts to snatch parliamentary seats

The leadership of the Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS) believes the the parliamentary seat of Mirko Raskovic, who left the party on Monday, belongs to the SDSS, stressing that the party would have to seek the protection of state institutions should their indications regarding "attempts to snatch seats" prove to be true.

Claiming that "the party leaders have indications of the attempts to snatch seats in the Croatian parliament, now that every seat is important," SDSS vice president Milorad Pupovac told Hina that he had informed President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic of that on Thursday, during consultations with political parties in her office, but that they "were left without protection."

"Should the indications of attempts to snatch seats prove to be true, we will have to seek protection of state institutions, because such things cannot be tolerated," Pupovac said.

 Last Thursday, Raskovic asked to be received by Grabar-Kitarovic separately and after the meeting he told reporters that he had asked her to protect him politically because his party was pressuring him regarding his support for prime minister-designate.
