STATEMENT OF THE DAY: Bosanac: The Croatian voters did not succumb to the black campaign
CIVIL MEDIA conducted an interview with Gordan Bosanac from the Croatian political platform “We Can”, which marked huge success at the local elections, by winning absolute majority in Zagreb and winning in Split and Pazin (Istra). Bosanac, among else, stated:
“The campaign, particularly in the second round, was incredibly dirty. I had hoped that after Bexit took place, after Trump, that we had learned something about how campaigns are regulated, especially on the internet media. At the end, we could see that none of that is regulated and that it’s a space that the rival team, unfortunately, can use to disparage and spread completely false information about all of us, about the candidates”.
