HDZ official: We have secured enough votes for reshuffle

The newly-elected secretary-general of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), Domagoj Ivan Milosevic, said on Thursday that the HDZ had enough support in the parliament to regroup the parliamentary majority and that it would result in a government reshuffle.

"We have the support of a sufficient number of MPs in the parliament to regroup the parliamentary majority. By regrouping the parliamentary majority, we will enable a government reshuffle," Milosevic told reporters outside the party headquarters.

He underlined that the HDZ would not back down from its motion for the impeachment of Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic and called on him to resign.

Milosevic said HDZ chief Tomislav Karamarko would say who the new prime minister would be.

He confirmed that Finance Minister Zdravko Maric was one of the people the HDZ had considered for the post of the next Prime Minister.
