Labour Party on cycling whistle-stop tour of Croatia ahead of 11 Sept poll

The Croatian Labour Party on Thursday started its whistle-stop tour ahead of the 11 September parliamentary election with "the start line" of this cycling tour being the yard outside the former Kamensko clothes factory in Zagreb.

Party leader Tomislav Koncevski said that his party would advocate the protection of workers and their families.

"We advocate the preservation rather than the sale of state assets and resources, and we will fight against corruption," Koncevski said, adding that anti-corruption activist Zorislav Petrovic had joined the party in the campaign.

Koncevski said that the party's candidates had opted for bicycles as their means of transport during the campaign trail in an effort to raise awareness of the use of bicycles as a cost-effective, environmentally friendly and healthy mode of transportation.
