Sincic pleased with exit poll results, expects more seats

The vice-president of the Zivi Zid (Human Shield) party, Ivan Vilibor Sincic, expressed satisfaction with the results of exit polls which showed that his party had won three seats in the 151-seat parliament in Sunday's election.

"We are pleased with the results because we made it into parliament, but we will know more after the State Electoral Commission releases preliminary results. This is not over yet, we are close (to the election threshold of five per cent) in many constituencies and I believe that that will turn to our advantage," Sincic told reporters after the release of exit polls.

Sincic reiterated that his party would not enter into a coalition with either the Social Democratic Party (SDP) or the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ). "We stick to what we said before the election. The trust of our citizens is sacred to us and we will not betray it," he stressed.
