We have shown that we can do it and that a small spark can restore hope in the future, said Tomislav Tomasevic of the political group We Can! after their green-left coalition achieved a surprising success in Sunday's elections winning six seats in parliament.

"They told us that we can't enter parliament and that we can't shake up the position of (Zagreb Mayor) Milan Bandic. We have shown them that we can," Tomasevic said to euphoric chanting from his supporters and sympathisers at the coalition's election headquarters in Zagreb.

He said that their six-party coalition had demonstrated creativity and perseverance despite the lack of infrastructure.

Speaking of their future steps, Tomasevic said that their focus would be on removing from power "all local sheriffs" as well as on fighting for social justice, environmental sustainability, democracy and gender equality.
