Sabor puts motion for its dissolution on its agenda

The Croatian parliament on Monday included in its agenda a motion for its self-dissolution, and the decision was followed by a debate on the item.

The dissolution of the parliament was requested by 89 MPs from the Labour Party, the Human Shield, the Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS) and the Reformists, Bridge, the Croatia Is Growing coalition, BM 365, the Pensioners Together Bloc (BUZ), Hrid, representatives of ethnic minorities and independent MP Gordana Rusak.

The agenda was expanded without any objections, and Social Democrat Dragica Zgrebec asked for a break so that political parties could agree a date when the decision on the self-dissolution of the parliament would go into force but Speaker Zeljko Reiner concluded, after receiving information from party benches, that they were in agreement regarding the date.

Most proposals for the dissolution of the parliament cited July 15 as the date for its dissolution.
