So we apparently got a new prime minister.

Nobody chose him ofcourse. Other people who are way smarter than us, who got vote "privilege"...chose for us.

Not that I got my candidate or anything...but this guy...doesnt even speak Croatian.

www.facebook.com...

I know..the joke went right past you. It's the language barrier.

Apparently...this guys is all for Croatian buildings...he just...loves it.

In the Croatian Parliament, as I understand it, the Prime Minister is selected by a majority of Ministers in the Parliament. This is typical of the Parliamentary system of government. Croatians vote for a President. Did not understand the OP as not familiar with the lingo.

Incredibly ridiculously difficult to master for a foreigner. English is so much easier and more efficient. The joke was that the guy speaks rather poorly our native language that he mistakenly said "croatian buildings" instead of "croatian people". In croatian it's a subtle difference between words "građevine" (buildings) and "građani" (people/citizens).

You had to be there

That was supposed to be "croatian"...had nothing to do with serbian or slovenian. That was also one point of the entire joke. To use the NBA jargon...not even close

Not so much "Ministers" as local representative in numbers based on number of voters for whichever local region they represent. Ministers are only appointed once the winner of the elections is known, and the party that won or a coalition (which is usually the case) appoints their people for the positions of the Ministers.

Presidential elections are, naturally, a different thing altogether, and have no bearing on the election of the government.


-------------------------------------------------

The meaning of my thread was...the man doesnt speak local all that well. He is a Canadian citizen with a permanent address in Holland, with Croatian roots. Just now moved to Zagreb (Croatian capital), upon being appointed as the Prime Minister. He is (as stated by the media) a representative of big capital.

Anyway...thank you few for participating
