Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic on Monday signed a condolence book which was opened to visitors at the Zagreb City Hall following the sudden death of Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic on Sunday. After the signing, Plenkovic said that Bandic had "worked hard to make Zagreb a better city."

Asked by the press outside City Hall if ssandal-ridden Bandic, who ran the city for 20 years, would be remembered as a negative or positive politician, Plenkovic said that it is “evident how much he had tried to do good things for Zagreb.”


“There are good and less good things about anyone involved in politics,” Plenkovic said, adding that “time will tell.”

“During his 20-year-long mayoral term, Bandic contributed to the development of the city and to the implementation of many projects, he demonstrated huge energy and enthusiasm, and what is crucial – he worked for Zagreb every day,” Plenkovic said.

Plenkovic thanked the late mayor for the positive things he did for residents of Zagreb and their city as well as for other parts of Croatia.

“Over the past five years, as Prime Minister I cooperated with the Mayor (Bandic), and we both supported the development of the Croatian capital. As a politician and a man, Mayor Bandic was distinctive for his inexhaustible working energy and enthusiasm,” Plenkovic wrote in the book.
