Therefore, the director asked Bryan what distinguishes him from Popovich, and many complain that he made a private company from Koper. The bartender replied that, since the municipal councilor of Koper, he had left. “The services we provide are related to the activities carried out by the municipalities, the institute, other municipalities throughout Slovenia and abroad,” he said.
Why did Popovich spend so much money on elections?

The second round of mayoral elections is becoming more intense
Billion for lawyers
The leader also mentioned an amount of 5.6 million Euros at the meeting, since he spent only four years in the municipality for lawyers. He said that if he won, he would lose these expenses. "It seems to me completely unreasonable to spend so much money on the services of a lawyer." Popovich replies that Bryan does not know the situation and does not know what the matter is. “You need lawyers all the time, and they will need him if he becomes mayor,” answered Popovich. He explained that the municipality will have much more expenses if it does not have lawyers, and listed what is included in this amount.
The big story of this campaign is also Popovic’s alleged threat to one of the employees in the commune, as he plans to have different plans with his son’s football career. The current mayor says the story is completely fictitious. He says that the story of vexation was invented by his former close associate Gaspar Gaspar Mišić.

Popovich, however, criticizes Brzhan’s plan (lower utility prices, less contribution to real estate, cheaper parking for local residents). “It's time to agree on where we will drive garbage and how much it will cost,” he says himself, but he doesn’t even know what to expect. I at least know what awaits me, – answered Popovich.
Popovich neglects the countryside?
One of the main election slogans of candidate Alyosha Brzhan is the harmonious development of the city and the countryside. A candidate for mayor says that the Kršen countryside is neglected for 16 years. “The city is not yet developed, the city still does not know anything. What Mr. Bryan says is meaningless, ”said Popovich. “We will have to invest, it will never end,” he added.
In each village there are bus stations, garbage cans, public lighting and everything else, something new, local residents explained. Local residents do not understand the discrepancies between the development of the city and the countryside. Boris Popovich will have no problems in case of failure in the Sunday elections in search of his work. Because of the skillful sewing of scissors, where he cut the ribbons on the holes, every tailor would have liked it. It is difficult to list all objects opened in the last two months. The thin border between brilliance and suffering was even more pronounced by the new sports park, which had been broken even before the opening.

The current mayor replies that on Sunday "there will be an unprecedented number of voters who will want to continue development." “People are those who have power,” he added, and came to the conclusion that in case of Brzhan’s victory, the candidate would win without a program.
