Three right-wing Croatian parties form election coalition

The Croatian Party of Rights (HSP), the Croatian Pure Party of Rights (HCSP) and the Family Party (OB) on Monday signed a letter of intent to run together in the early parliamentary election in September.

The three right-wing parties said they were open to talks with other politically compatible groups of similar views.

The newly-formed coalition, called Pomak, will run in all ten electoral units in Croatia and the one designed for the diaspora. They said they would finance their campaign with membership contributions and donations and would meet the women's quota, which requires that at least 40 percent of candidates running for parliament should be women.

HSP leader Danijel Srb said that they would fight for Croatian national interests, Christian Democratic and family values, improving the status of Homeland War veterans and reducing unemployment. He said he believed this coalition was strong enough to cross the election threshold in eight constituencies.
