Parliament to convene on Monday to decide on dissolution, says SDP chief

Social Democrat (SDP) leader Zoran Milanovic said on Friday that he had talked with Parliament Speaker Zeljko Reiner of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) and that it had been agreed that the parliament would hold a session on Monday at which it would decide on its self-dissolution.

I have talked with the Speaker and it has been agreed that the parliament should convene at noon Monday to decide on its dissolution, Milanovic told the press in the Sabor.

"The dissolution of parliament is beyond question. We only need a decision stating that parliament should be dissolved on 15 July. As of that date deadlines start running for calling an early election," Milanovic told the press after consultations with the president.

Milanovic believes that an appropriate date for the election could be 4 September.
