In the shadow of the campaign for the European Parliament in Zagreb, ten days ago, elections were held that attracted little attention of citizens and even less media attention.
Although the right to vote has more voters than many Croatian cities, especially the municipality, have a total population, the elections for members of the councils and representatives of national minorities in Zagreb have not attracted a large number of voters.
The Serbs were mostly defeated even though their politicians practically led the campaign, which was, however, so vague and it was hard to say whether the SDSS cry was intended for local or European elections. In any case, crying in the Cyrillic and Latin-inspired prayers of "marketing experts" did not motivate the largest national minority in the capital or walk to the polls.
Of the total 21 582 members of the Serbian national minority, only 1.45 percent of them came to the polls. Of these 314 voters, the highest votes were given by people appearing on the SDSS poster for the European elections. Milorad Pupovac and Dejan Jović were the only ones to get over 200 votes, but their party colleagues did not go bad either. Mostly, in the Council of Serbian National Minorities, which are counted by 25 members, all have entered. The Serbs were more motivated by the Bulgarians whose election boom was 2.15. With his two votes, Bulgaria's representative became Paško Ivanov and his deputy Prvan Prvanov. The rest of the 93 Bulgarians have no right to vote for them.
The highest motivation was recorded among the Poles. Out of the total number of 123 voters enrolled, almost 40 has come out of the elections, which is likely to be unavailable in the elections to the European Parliament next Sunday. The Russians achieved only a small deficit. Interestingly, both the Russians and Poles were only women candidates.
This is one of the major attractions of these choices. Where there were more women who competed, the output was much higher. This may well explain the so low Serbian exodus because the SDSS is the only one in the first places to offer them the men who run for all other elections: from local, national to European.
As they have not done on the official website of the City of Zagreb despite unrivaled financial resources, on these pages you will be able to find the results of elections for all national minorities in the languages and scripts of these national minorities. Unfortunately, we only missed the Roma language because we were unable to find a translator. Not alive or artificial.
Damn, because their choices were among the most interesting. For the first time, all the 25 percent of the representatives of the Roma National Council received a list. The Romans dream association took the absolute victory, and the 40 percent of their candidates were women.
