Bridge says Prgomet wasn't invited to Sunday meeting

The coalition of independent slates Bridge on Saturday denied Drago Prgomet's claim that he, too, had been invited to Sunday's meeting of the coalition's National Council consisting of elected members of Parliament and their associates, saying that their former member was acting exclusively in line with his personal interests rather than Bridge's interests.

"Mr Prgomet has of his own accord sent messages to members of the National Council and of Parliament, inviting himself to Bridge's meeting to be held tomorrow," Bridge said after earlier today Prgomet said on his Facebook profile that he would attend the meeting "at the invitation of his colleagues, elected MPs."

Bridge recalls that "by his recent actions that had not been agreed with the Bridge National Council, Mr Prgomet expelled himself from that body." Consequently, Bridge made a decision to talk with Prgomet "only after the completion of negotiations" with the Patriotic Coalition and the Croatia Is Growing coalition, Bridge said.

"Unfortunately, Mr Prgomet is continuing to impose his positions and decisions on other members of Bridge, but regardless of that, the National Council and elected MPs will stick by their decision to talk to him only after the completion of the talks, even though Mr Prgomet is currently acting solely in line with his own interests and not Bridge's interests," Bridge said.

 Bridge's meeting, scheduled for Sunday, will start at 10 am in Zagreb's Antunovic Hotel and the coalition's members will address the media at 4 pm.
