Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Wednesday the opposition SDP was seeing a repeat of the situation of four years ago when its former president resigned and his successor's personnel proposals were not supported, but added that he wished the party all the best.

The Social Democratic Party’s new president Pedja Grbin last night accused his predecessor Davor Bernardic of contesting the presidency’s and members’ decisions after the party’s parliamentary group did not back his personnel proposals.

“This is continuity now. Four years ago, when the previous president was resigning, we had the same scenario. Now there’s a new president and we have the same scenario again,” Plenkovic told the press, commenting on the fact that Grbin does not have the SDP caucus’ support for his personnel changes, which is why the parliamentary majority will decide on them.

Plenkovic said he wished the strongest opposition party all the best.
