President of the party Forward Croatia - Progressive Alliance Ivo Josipovic said on the presentation of a coalition list that Croatia is "at risk of being tricked" today and reminded of its presidential election campaign when it announced that Croatia would "crumble". We are here to counter this and to preserve social democracy, said Josipovic. He said that the term "red" did not speak in an ideological sense, but as a symbol of social democracy, socially sensitive, just and successful Croatia. Then Croatia was 'scrambled' on the presidential and then in the parliamentary elections, he added.
"We gathered because we were dissatisfied, because that option to which we many belonged was not on the track we were at that time," he pointed out. "We are here because we do not want to coalition tomorrow with the HDZ, but not with HDSSB," Josipovic added. That party wants to be an authentic left wing, a factor of stability, progress and development after the election, he added, adding that he believes in a good election result.
All candidates from the list were represented by the second and third former SDP members Dino Kozlevac, now president of the Istrian party organization Forward Croatia, and independent candidate Luka Denon.
