Karamarko: Grabar-Kitarovic's presidency ended international political isolation

Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) leader Tomislav Karamarko said on Monday that a year ago Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic was elected President of the Republic and that on the day of her election "the country began overcoming its international political isolation."

"A year ago, on January 11, the Republic of Croatia got a woman president after yet another election defeat of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) led by Zoran Milanovic. On that day, the country started overcoming the international political isolation which it had been in and which will be completed with Milanovic's leaving the post of Prime Minister, after his fifth consecutive election defeat. The election victory of Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic has reopened the door of democratic countries to us," Karamarko said on his Facebook account.

The HDZ leader said Grabar-Kitarovic's results in the first year of her term had justified the party's decision to nominate her its presidential candidate, describing those results as excellent.
