Parliament fails to appoint HBOR Supervisory Board

Croatian lawmakers on Friday appointed several commissions and parliamentary delegations, but failed to appoint the Supervisory Board of the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development (HBOR), although that was also on their agenda.

Although the parliament was expected to support the proposal submitted by the Elections and Appointments Committee, that did not happen, and Dragica Zgrebec of the opposition Social Democratic Party (SDP) ascribed the latest developments to failure by Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) to reach agreement on the matter.

The parliament managed to secure a quorum and vote on several items on the agenda after failing to do this on the previous two Fridays.

The parliament appointed its representatives to sit on the Commission for Assessment of Natural Disaster Damage, the National Waters Commission, the Commission on the Islands, as well as delegates to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean, the Parliamentary Dimension of the Central European Initiative, the Inter-parliamentary Union and so on.
