Miletic: Croatia needs stable govt, IDS is growing

The Istrian Democratic Party (IDS) leader Boris Miletic said on Sunday evening that regardless of which political camp would form the new government, Croatia needs a stable government and that the country didn't need any more experiments, adding that the returns from polling stations were showing that the ratings of IDS were growing.

"Trading with fundamental human and civil rights must not be allowed in Croatia. That has to be something left behind and IDS will remain consistent and will always fight for that," Miletic said, after he thanked the electorate who had gone to the polls and showed that they trusted regional options.

"IDS is strong, IDS is growing each election and this election will show that we have fortified our position in Constituency VIII, because the data shows that voters' trust in our regional option is growing," Miletic said after Sunday's early parliamentary vote.

Apart from being a force in Istria, IDS as a regional option has positioned itself at the national level with its decentralisation platform. That is something that is inevitable for Croatia's improvement and something that IDS has been promoting for the past 25 years, according to Miletic.

"Croatia has to decentralise if it wishes to advance, develop its economy and create new jobs. IDS has always been the 'avant-garde' in politics and this time we've shown not only are we different to others but we are ahead of them," he said.
