The victory of the Liberal/National Party Coalition in Australia has been acknowledged, for a third term, in a victory speech tonight by the Hon. John Howard. I am sure that I am not alone amongst most Croatian people in congratulating him, and hope that the Croatian community in Australia can do its utmost to develop good relations with members of the Coalition.
The victory of the Coalition in Australia will help to assure that the Coalition Against Terror in the world remains on a steady, united foundation, and in addition, it will assure that there is a balanced power sharing coexistence amongst democratic nations.
In addition, the failure to win the seat of Calwell Victoria Australia by the independent Dr. A. Theophanous (former ALP-Socialist-Left faction) should come as a wake up call for the Croatian community leaders in Melbourne Australia. For far too long Croatian lobbyists in Australia, at least in Victoria, have been openly supporting only the opposition to the elected government. How can this be in the best interests of Croatia, or HDZ?
regards to everyone, Jean W. Marinovic.
