The Croatian parliament on Monday passed a decision on its self-dissolution to take effect on July 15, with 137 MPs voting in favour of the decision.

Two MPs voted against and one abstained.

On July 15, constitutional deadlines for a snap parliamentary election start running. Under the Constitution, the election must be held within a minimum 30 days and a maximum 60 days from the parliament's dissolution.

The decision on the date of the election is to be made by President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, who after last week's consultations with representatives of parliamentary parties said almost all parties were agreed that the election should be held in early September.
