Milan Bandic metaphorically announced his fifth candidacy for the Mayor of Zagreb at the 1st May celebration in Maksimir. When asked if he would run again he replied:
- What do you think? Should I? We will ask the citizens who gave me the trust four times and I haven’t turned swords into ploughshares yet.
He gave carnations as a gift to the citizens and after that he put on a white gown he started filling the bowls with beans. There were more than 40 thousand portions of beans and sausages.
The other candidate who announced his candidacy was Davor Bernardic. The only condition was the support of the City Board. He refused to make any comments about the candidacy of Boris Sprem and the independent candidate Josip Kregar. Bernardic was also giving carnations to the citizens together with the ministers Gordan Maras and Mirando Mrsic.
The president Ivo Josipovic was also present. He said that our society in general doesn’t appreciate work and we don’t have the cult of working.
- Let’s declare this 1st of May as a day when we start building the cult of working all over again – the president said.
