President holds talks with Karamarko, Petrov

President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic received First Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Karamarko in her office on Monday and then Deputy PM Bozo Petrov, who informed her about the situation in the government, the president's office told Hina.

Earlier today, the president held talks with PM Tihomir Oreskovic and Parliament Speaker Zeljko Reiner.

The talks at the president's office ensued after Oreskovic last week asked Karamarko and Petrov to step down. Karamarko then said that Oreskovic no longer enjoyed the support of his HDZ party and announced that the party, unless Oreskovic resigned, would initiate his impeachment and a majority reshuffle in parliament and the government.

The president has also postponed an official visit to Lithuania scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.
