The citizens of Split are in despair, the nation is shocked. That’s why it is be good to remind about people who upgraded this mayor of Split Zeljko Kerum and his sister Nevenka Becic even to their Parliamentary seats? Who is responsible for those two politicians, who are completely immature even to handle the local authority, as they now became a compromising element even for the national Parliament? The current HDZ president should see a bigger problem in this situation rather then she has problems with increasing number of competitors over forthcoming inner party elections.
If she really isn’t a primary author of the idea about coalition with Kerum, Jadranka Kosor definitely is its responsible creator. We can congratulate Kosor with no remorse that the Split mayor and his sister, the president of the City council Split, achieved a progress up to national legislative level, where the highest moral and intellectual goal is something people expect from that position. And now we can see what this mayor of Split and his sister offer in that sense as they convince Split citizens and Croatia that they don’t have anything to do with a responsibility for the chaos in Split caused by snowy weather and extremely low temperatures.
There are already 600 injured people who ended up in medical treatments and for the Split authority they are not a reason for an excuse, not to mention a reason for a resignation. Zeljko Kerum and Nevenka Becic simply are not able to leave their state of mind. The state and the citizens are guilty since the local authority has nothing to do with it. That’s how an entrepreneur has outspoken from Kerum. His first interest is in the state lowering tax burdens. People are injured since they don’t have normal footwear or snow tyre chains, and the reason why they don’t have it is because the state takes too much money out of them.
His sister (god, where else brother and sister are a head of authority), the president of the City council Split turned her TV performance into a grotesque. On the first day she claimed people were guilty on their own due to their injuries caused by fall on ice, since they didn’t have to leave the house without a huge necessity and their obligations were to have children, nephews and good neighbors who would have taken care of them. Yesterday she was decisive: the city services functioned pretty well. The city authority can’t be responsible for overloaded hospital since people who got injured are not Split citizens, but citizens of surrounding areas which gravitate towards Split.
That was unseen production of ‘’wise’’ quotes that caused astonishment at first, than anxiety that eventually has turned into amusement for viewer mass. Broken Split citizens are not laughing neither are people who will now have to collide with almost impregnable legal procedure in order to force this miraculous duo to leave the city administration.
Zeljko Kerum and Nevenka Becic could, thanks to a legal protection of mandates on directly elected mayor, remain on their positions until a local election. And they will ‘’adorn’’ the Parliament for entire four years. Thanks to Jadranka Kosor and all those HDZ members who didn’t have courage to oppose this problem in time.
