Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 6, 2020 – Croatian People’s Party (HNS) leader Ivan Vrdoljak said that the meeting of the ruling coalition held on Tuesday focused on a budget review and an education bill as the basis for the adoption of decisions necessary to bring the school year to an end and regulate school leaving exams and enrolment.

“We primarily discussed the budget review and what the topics of our meeting next week will be. I wanted the budget review… to contain a clear message that public sector investments would continue and be stimulated,” said Vrdoljak after the meeting.

“The second topic was… the formulation by the government of a bill on education, to be discussed by the parliament next week. The bill should serve as the basis for the adoption of decisions that have to be made to enable the completion of the school year and regulate school leaving exams and enrolment,” said Vrdoljak.

Answering a reporter’s question, he said that the meeting did not discuss the issue of elections.

“The HNS and I think that elections should be held as soon as possible because serious decisions need to be made. The business sector cannot wait until December because someone in politics might want or not want elections to be held. Put forward your platforms, present them to voters and let them decide what the next two, three or four years should look like,” said Vrdoljak.

He said that he did not ask Prime Minister Andrej Plenković when the parliament would be dissolved. “The matter will soon be put on the agenda,” he said.
