MOST party seeks PM's position - unofficial

The Bridge alliance will ask in the coming negotiations on the formation of a new government that one of its leaders, Drago Prgomet, be the next prime minister, Hina learned from sources close to the party on Monday, who added that Prgomet and another Bridge leader, Bozo Petrov, had been discussing this and a platform for negotiations since noon.

After the meeting, Bridge will hold a session of its National Council.

Bridge won 19 seats in Sunday's parliamentary election and is the most desirable option to the two major coalitions, the SDP-led Croatia Is Growing and the HDZ-led Patriotic Coalition, because the new government cannot be formed without it.

Prgomet, a former HDZ vice president, confirmed to the media this morning that the Bridge National Council would meet today but would not say which decisions might be made. "We are ready to assume the responsibility for running the state. We'll talk only with those who are willing to assume responsibility and carry out reforms."
