President has no right to invite just selected journalists to her Press Conference

Croatian Journalists' Association (CJA) welcomes the fact that the Croatian President has accepted our frequent requests for politicians to have press conferences instead of communicating with the press through press releases without possibility of putting questions. But at the same time we find the fact that just some journalists, selected by the President and her Office, have been asked to attend today's Press Conference to be shocking. We have received complaints about it from several editorial boards. We want to add that no foreign correspondent has been invited to the Conference.
