Social Democratic Party presidential candidate Zoran Milanovic said on Saturday that Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, whom he has known for 25 years, never had anything nice to say about Croatia's first president, Franjo Tudjman, but that he has the worst opinion of him.

Speaking at an election rally in Dubrovnik, Milanovic said he found it funny to see how people such as "newly awakened and newly fledged admirers" like Plenkovic had developed a deep affinity and affection for Tudjman.

"That's dishonest... We know who Plenkovic is. He has the worst possible opinion of Tudjman, worse than mine."

During a commemoration on the 20th anniversary of Tudjman's death, Plenkovic said in Split on Saturday that Croatia's first President had the support not only of the people but also of the Catholic Church and that he was a genuine Croatian sovereignist.

"He was a visionary statesman and a man who found strength in the most complicated historical circumstances to recognise a crucial time on the European continent and implement his idea of a free and sovereign Croatian state," Plenkovic said during a wreath-laying ceremony in front of the monument erected to Tudjman in the biggest Croatian Adriatic city.
