PM: Karamarko is huge burden for government and HDZ

Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic reiterated on Tuesday that First Deputy Prime Minister and Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) leader Tomislav Karamarko was a huge burden for the government and the HDZ.

"I respect the HDZ as a party, but as I have said before, Mr Karamarko is a huge burden for this government, and even for the HDZ, and I am confident that the HDZ will make the right decision," Oreskovic told the press while leaving the government headquarters.

"This is a battle for Croatia. I heard Mr Karamarko and his statement. My message is very clear: I received confidence in the Croatian parliament and am not afraid to ask for its confidence again," he added, without specifying whose confidence he enjoyed.
