HSP advocates Croatia's leaving EU

Following the announcement of results of a referendum at which Britain voted to leave the European Union, the Croatian Party of Rights (HSP) issued a manifesto on Friday calling on state and civic institutions to support them in the launching of a process of dissolution between Croatian and the European Union which, according to the HSP, had proved to be weak, slow and disunited from which Croatia is benefiting nothing.

A growing number of countries feels dissatisfied with the situation in the EU, which can be seen on the example of the referendum in Great Britain. The process of disintegration has been launched and Croatians must not stay behind. We cannot wait for others to do it before us and come out the loser. This time we need to be the front runners of the idea which will be to our benefit and which will help save the Croatian state and its people, the HSP said in its manifesto.

The right-wing party asked the parliament, the government, the President, the Constitutional Court, the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts and the Catholic Church to back their efforts to launch the dissolution process.
