Zagreb mayoral candidate Tomislav Tomasevic of the Mozemo! and Zagreb je Nas! green-left coalition, who has won 45 percent of the vote in Sunday's local elections, said on Sunday night they would win with a free hand in the runoff so that they could effect changes.
“We’ll win in two weeks with heads held high and be able to look everyone in the eye. We’ll win in two weeks without having sold our souls and without owing anyone so that we can have a free hand to carry out changes so that this city can be a better place to live for all,” he said.
Tomasevic said that by giving him the largest support, the people of Zagreb said that Zagreb did not belong to an interest group but to all who live in it, adding that, in Zagreb, the coalition had made one and a half of the two steps necessary to rid the city of the “octopus of corruption” and that “only half a step more is necessary” to change the model of governance.
He said there was no time to relax and that in the next two weeks of campaigning before the runoff on May 30, the coalition would lead a positive campaign and “again give our all.”
“We’ll continue to lead a positive campaign and focus on the problems of this city and on solutions to those problems. We won’t resort to dirty tricks like some of our rivals,” said Tomasevic, who will face right-wing DP party’s candidate Miroslav Skoro in the runoff.
