Former Labour Party member to run on Bandic-Cacic coalition slate

A former member of the Labour Party, Nensi Tireli, will run in the September 11 parliamentary election as an independent candidate on the coalition slate of Milan Bandic and Radimir Cacic.

Tireli confirmed for Hina on Friday she would run in Constituency no.1 (Zagreb) as an independent candidate on the coalition slate of the political parties Bandic Milan 365 - The Party of Work and Solidarity, the People's Party - Reformists, the New Wave - Development Party, the Croatian Peasant Party Stjepan Radic and the pensioners' party BUZ.

Tireli has recently left the Labour Party on her own accord and the media speculated that the Social Democratic Party (SDP), which does not want the Labour Party in its coalition, is prepared to offer Tireli a place on its slate.

Tireli had a disagreement with the incumbent Labour Party president Tomislav Koncevic who criticised her and another MP for voting against the impeachment of Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic in parliament, contrary to the party presidency's decision.
