spotlight playing golf which is main challenge it is style for bennett age the social democrat leader is heading a restart coalition made up of small the center left parties he's trying to win over voters by claiming the removal of a dozen government ministers is proof of that incompetence. but. the election comes as depend damage batters croatia's fight terrorism success but the biggest financial crisis in decades looming the economy is the main issue for many voters. that are both i know that for me as a young mother it is important to have a stable job so my family can be sustained the fire at a certain amount of that 11 they don't care enough about croatians going abroad on the climb and and the low salaries for young people many simply don't have a choice we should have more young people. involved in politics and the

9:08 am
a big effect on this election what do you think croatian voters the thinking about as they head to the polls. i think there is a degree of uncertainty but partly and i wouldn't say fear i think the development on view really is that it's come autumn in particular and nobody knows what exactly the consequences economic consequences from particular of this strong a crisis will be taken that the creation tourism makes more than 20 percent of the g.d.p. of the country and that we know of that we don't take you know at the moment whether the current crisis will continue for much longer i think everyone understands a majority of people understand that it's very difficult to govern in these circumstances nevertheless there is a big question mark over whether croatia should continue with the governing of the or indeed any of these 2 major parties that have actually marked the creation

politics for the last 30 years or whether they will they will have to be or in what should be some kind of a challenge to them. we've heard that some analysts from the ruling power went to these early elections because they hope to capitalize from they handling all of the pandemic but given there's a renewed spike in cases do you think this gamble is going to pay off. the 2 major parties including the christian democratic union have lost about 20 percent of their voters compared to the last elections in 2016 and they try to avoid further loss in losing of the votes that might happen because of the economic crisis in the autumn and the agent said indeed which insists that in his in its slogan that only the creation is safe only with them all for some kind of stability and continuity and so certainly they would like to come up with the lies the circumstances of the crisis and to offer themselves as these safe pair of hands
