MP Petrina slams PM over TTIP

Independent deputy in the Croatian Parliament Stipe Petrina on Wednesday asked for the replacement of Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic and "a share of the government", over the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) which, according to Petrina, has been kept back from parliament and its members.

"I ask that the prime minister and some government ministers be recalled because of the TTIP which has been kept back from parliament and its deputies, namely because of arrival of Monsanto in Croatia," Petrina said at the start of today's session.

After other deputies put forward to the agenda issues which they hold topical Parliament Speaker Zeljko Reiner allowed a break to adjust the agenda.
