After numerous clashes between Croatian President Zoran Milanovic and almost all political institutions in Croatia in the last two days, the highest-ranking representative of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), Vladimir Jeks, hinted that it was time to consider ousting the President. .
On Friday, citing the Italian film “Good, Bad and Ugly”, Milanovic described Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic as “ugly”, Independent Serbian Democratic Party leader Milorad Pupovac as “dirty”, and Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandrokovic. as “bad”.
Pupovac said Milanovic had told him by telephone that other ethnic minority parliamentary representatives should vote for Zlata Đurđević, his candidate for President of the Supreme Court, with Pupovac describing him as an attempt to exert influence.
Pupovac posted on Facebook text messages he had received from Milanovic during consultations on the appointment of the new Supreme Court President. He said he had decided to publish them following rumors that had begun circulating in the public sphere.
In one of the messages published by Pupovac, Milanović writes: “Shame on you, wretched! The Serb people in Croatia will prosper as soon as they get rid of you and your thieves. “Pupovac said he would not apologize.
Milanovic applauded with his message group, claiming that Pupovac had withdrawn from publishing some essential texts from the conversation. Without downplaying his words, Milanovic expressed his feelings over Pupovac’s allegations that “the President violated the state constitution.” Milanović also went after Vladimir Šeks, describing him as “one of the people behind the HDZ judiciary”.
The Czech did not remain silent. “I think the symptoms of a mental illness have already progressed a lot. I’m not an expert, but it certainly is a cocktail of certain disorders; paranoia, schizophrenia… “, replied eks.
He added that all conditions were met to start the procedure of Milanovic’s resignation from the post of President of the Republic, as he openly violated the Constitution, especially in his recent appearances, as well as the basic principles of the constitutional order. “A procedure should be initiated to determine the temporary incapacity of the President of the Republic to perform his duties,” Wex declared.
In fact, in a similar way, Milanovic erupted insults against several other public figures, including judges, journalists and influencers.
The Czech call will not yet receive wider support among politicians and voters. However, if Milanovic’s behavior continues, the first bits of support could emerge very quickly.
