Croatian election winner joins forces with far-right in new government – ​​POLITICO

The Fatherland Movement – ​​or DP – was formed by nationalist crooner Miroslav Škoro in 2020 to offer a more patriotic, far-right alternative to the HDZ, arguably Croatia’s most powerful party, which has undergone a major restructuring under Plenković.

“Plenković made a considerable effort to expel and neutralize far-right figures from the HDZ, but now many of those who were affiliated with the HDZ are part of the Fatherland Movement,” said Hrvoje Klasić, historian and expert on the Fatherland. far right in Croatia. told POLITICO.

Škoro has since been ousted from the party, and although PD members say they have softened their approach on some issues, the party remains synonymous with hardline, socially conservative ideas.

“Many voters who supported the HDZ now vote for the Homeland Movement. If, for example, Plenković was removed from office and someone more right-wing returned to the HDZ, then the Homeland Movement would completely lose support,” he continued.

Plenković – like Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni – has been on the HZD candidate list for the June European elections since the April elections, apparently to rally support for his party.

Others fear that Plenković will accept a mandate in Brussels after the June vote, thereby depriving Croatian politics of its moderating influence.
