Former Playboy Model Ava Karabatić Is Running For President In Croatia

A former Playboy model has announced that she will be running for president in Croatia.

Ava Karabatić, who has also appeared on reality TV, has previously campaigned for prostitution to be legalised in an attempt to keep sex workers safe and boost taxes - but has now gone one step further and announced that she will be running in the upcoming election.

A new president will be voted in next January in Croatia, and Karabatić will see herself up against the current independent president , 51, who will be hoping for a second five-year term.

Thirty-one-year-old Karabatić announced she would be running on social media, where she shared a number of snaps from a beach in Italy where she is currently on holiday.

Alongside the photos, she wrote: "I have decided I will run for president.

"I have been given so many support messages on Instagram and I thank you for that.

"Politics is my second love. I can not longer watch bad things happen to my country.

"It is like everyone is blind with healthy eyes, our young people leave the country, birth rates fall.

"I know I am going to have a lot of comments from trolls because I am a starlet, but that ignores my intellectual side where I am professor of Italian language and Roman literature.

"I wrote an autobiography, a novel, starred in a film that has been in the cinema for months, and in addition to acting, I became a painter too.

"Of course, my artistic abilities are not important, my new regime is, Ava's regime is important."

Her manifesto, outlined in a blog post shared on her Instagram page, includes legalisation of marijuana and prostitution, 'solving the problem of free movement of people', and banning abortion after six weeks of pregnancy.

Earlier this year, Karabatić spoke out in favour of legalising sex work in the country, saying that it would benefit both the individuals involved and the country as prostitutes would then be required to pay taxes.

She explained: "There are also psychological reasons, such as 'healing' the sexual frustrations that exist in our country.

"Prostitution should be legalised for economic reasons as well, so that the state can profit from payment of taxes.

"Also, I have studied medicine and am very aware of dangers of STDs, which can be avoided if prostitution becomes a legal profession."
