Sincic says SDP didn't ask for his support

A delegation of the Zivi Zid political party, led by MP Ivan Vilibor Sincic, held talks with the Social Democratic Party (SDP) at the SDP headquarters in Zagreb on Saturday evening.

After the meeting, Sincic told the press the talks focused on the situation in the country and the inauguration of the new parliament, adding that the SDP had not asked for Zivi Zid's support.

"We talked about the situation in the country, the financial crisis, the Croatian National Bank and the inauguration of the new parliament. Of course, there was no mention of any kind of support. Zivi Zid stands firm by its position that it would not support any party," Sincic said.

Asked directly if Milanovic requested his support, Sincic answered in the negative.

He also said it was not clear to him why the SDP had invited Zivi Zid for talks.

"I don't know, they probably want something from us, but we stand by our position," the Zivi Zid leader said.

Zivi Zid or Human Shield in English is a populist political party in Croatia, formed out of an anti-eviction group of the same name. The group fights foreclosures by occupying property, and forming a "human shield" as alluded to by the name.
