Right-Wing Parties to Run Together for European Parliament

By 2 April 2019

ZAGREB, April 2, 2019 - The Independents for Croatia (NHR) and the Croatian Party of Rights (HSP) have signed an agreement on cooperation in the coming elections for the European Parliament and their joint slate will be presented next week.

The agreement on cooperation demonstrates our political will and readiness for cooperation with similar political parties, NHR political secretary and member of parliament Zlatko Hasanbegović told a news conference in the parliament on Tuesday.

The NHR and the HSP share the same Party-of-Right political legacy of Ante Starčević, a common vision about the status of the Croatian nation and state in the EU and a common vision of Europe as a community of free, sovereign and independent nations, said Hasanbegović.

Hasanbegović said the joint slate for European elections would be presented next week and would include, apart from himself and the other NHR member of parliament Bruna Esih, HSP leader Karlo Starčević and Kutina Mayor Damir Markuš.

The two parties' goal in elections for the European Parliament is to win at least one seat, the parties' leaders said at the news conference at which they would not answer reporters' questions.
