Protesters demand new election outside president's home

About 100 citizens disgruntled with the outcome of the parliamentary election gathered in Zagreb's main square on Monday evening before marching on to President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic's home, demanding a new election.

The "protest against the coalition" between the Bridge party and the Croatian Democratic Union was organised on Facebook by people claiming that voters have been cheated.

"The only solution is a new election. We don't want such hustlers and manipulators to run our country. Enough! Let's show the mob that the people elects, but also topples," organisers said announcing the protest.

Protesters rallied in Ban Jelacic Square at 6 pm and proceeded to Grabar-Kitarovic's home, escorted by police. They want the president to come to them for consultations and call a new election.
