24 Sata - Croatia | Monday, September 29, 2014

New Green party is Croatia's big hope

According to recent polls the environmentalist party Orah, established just a year ago, is already the second most powerful party in Croatia. For the first time it has outstripped the Social Democrats, making it the decisive factor in next year's parliamentary elections, the tabloid 24 Sata writes: "Party founder Mirela Holy is considered an honest politician who [as environment minister] left the Social Democrats when the party refused to go along with her programme. She will push through her own ideas. Croatia needs such believable politicians who are ready to present a clear programme and stick to it at all costs without double-dealing or sweet phrases that are forgotten the moment they enter parliament or government. Holy benefits from such an image. Nevertheless, potential voters who are dissatisfied with the bipolarity [HDZ - SDP] of politics in Croatia should also read her party platform."
