JOSIP JURČEVIĆ: NOVI GLAS HRVATSKE MODERNE DESNICE
Aware that political parties can use money and power for more media space, Jurcevic is hoping that using a new model of pre-campaigning will enable him to be the joint independent national candidate for the president’s office.
‘Campaign will not have megalomania concept’
“At the gatherings, every candidate would propose a program, and the citizens would vote. With monitoring of course. The candidate that gains the most votes would be the joint national presidential candidate, whilst the others would remain a part of the team. This would guarantee that the votes will not be spread around. In this way that candidate is the joint independent candidate, and not of the interest groups. This would also save in marketing.
This model could also be adapted for the parliamentary elections” said Jurcevic for Javno.com.
He intends on financing his campaign with donations from the citizens, and not with large donations whose source is often questionable.
“This is the most common problem with large donations. My campaign will not have a megalomaniac concept, already adapted to the current situation, but strong enough. I will be present enough in Croatia and I expect to be recognized” said Jurcevic. He added that his candidature was a logical path.
‘Party support would be harmful, nor do I want it’
Even though he is an independent candidate without the help of any party, Jurcevic said that he does not want the support, because he considers that it would only harm him, whilst the model of pre-campaigning for independent candidates that he proposes would greatly help him at the upcoming elections.
“Parties have obviously lost the faith of the citizens. On Facebook there are spontaneous groups being created with tens of thousands of citizens that are complaining about the current used politicians and are voicing their disgust. They can use the media, power and money, but the pre-campaigns are the path to the joint national presidential candidate. There is no need for party support. My support are the Croatian citizens and it is obvious at the gatherings that I was present at. The support was massive thanks to the consistency of my work” said Jurcevic for Javno.com.
