Bridge: There won't be a tripartite government

The centre-right Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) sent a letter to the Bridge reformist party by the deadline of 4pm on Monday without declaring its position on the proposal to form a tripartite government, which was one of the conditions set by Bridge, Bridge's elected member of parliament Robert Podolnjak told the press.

"There won't be a tripartite government," Podolnjak said, adding that his party would continue negotiations with the centre-left Croatia Is Growing coalition, led by the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

On arriving for further talks with Bridge, SDP leader Zoran Milanovic would not say if he expected that the HDZ would return to the negotiating table, while SDP official Branko Grcic said: "No one knows that."
