St. Dujam's Day

Today is St. Dujam's Day, church holiday dedicated to the patron saint of Split.

This is opportunity for good citizens of Split to hail the success of their new favourite son, prime minister Ivo Sanader. He came to Split together with President Stipe Mesić (Stipe Mesic) and their presence at the festivities is good opportunity for people to speculate about the start of 2005 presidential campaign.

It is good day for Sanader. Opinion polls show that, for the first time in four years, someone is more popular than Mesić. And that someone is, of course, Sanader.

With Brussels bureaucrats and EU diplomats' statements about possibility of Croatian entry into EU being presented into great diplomatic victory for Sanader and with opposition being led by inept Ivica Račan (Ivica Racan), Croatian prime minister is probably going to remember this year's St. Dujam's Day as one of the high points of his political career.
