LOCAL ELECTIONS Game of City’s Throne
In Dubrovnik, political situation is particularly unstable. The management of the city was entrusted to Nada Medovic in January after mayor-at-the-time Andro Vlahusic’s budget didn’t get enough support in city council.
Vlahusic’s opposition is strongly against the candidature of public officers that have been declared guilty in fraud case and have initiated new law to prevent such cases. They have been accused to push the bill as only solution to keep Vlahusic off candidature. Vlahusic, on the other hand, made a complaint as the right of the citizens to choose whomever they want has been disabled as he won previous elections despite the conviction. Constitutional Court will give the final say within next 15 days.
Currently, the candidates for Dubrovnik’s mayor are:
Vido Bogdanović for HSS
Tatjana Šimac Bonačić for SDP
Mato Franković for HDZ
Maro Kristic for Most
Hrvoje Kukuljica for Živi zid
Terezina Orlić for DDS. *
