Former Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor Against the Dissolution of Parliament

Total Croatia News

Former Prime Minister Kosor calls for delay in dissolving Parliament.

The situation on the Croatian-Serbian border is not good, say the representative of the opposition, who warn of the possible consequences on the Croatian economy. Former prime minister Jadranka Kosor agrees that the situation is very difficult. In this unpredictable situation, Kosor believes that it is not the best idea to dissolve the parliament at this time, reports Vecernji List on September 24, 2015.

“After the dissolution, we would only have a caretaker government which cannot make strong decisions. I think it would not be wise to dissolve the parliament and I think it would be good to consider the possibility that the decision should be postponed and that the parliament should try to reach an agreement. At this moment the government needs the support of all parliamentary parties on how to resolve the crisis. I am not saying that this method would be perfect, but we need a kind of an agreement, just like in the case of the arbitration agreement. To have the parliament dissolved, and a government which is just a caretaker, together with this refugee wave… What if everything is redirected to the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina which we cannot protect even with the army. I think that the interests of the state must be ahead of party interests”, says former prime minister Kosor.

On the other hand, president of the ORaH party Mirela Holy says that, given the importance and role of the parliament and the way government treats the parliament, the dissolution would not pose much of a problem.

“Let’s face it, the government does what it wants. I am sorry that it has come to this escalation of relations with our neighbours, that is neither wise nor clever. I do not understand why the prime minister is acting in this way. I think we should lower the tensions, sit down and agree on steps to address this crisis, not only because of the Croatian and Serbian citizens, but also for the people who are coming here, the refugees. The situation is not critical, but it is very complicated. It is complicated in all of Europe and therefore I am sorry that the government had not been prepared in time. They could have prepared last month, maybe even earlier, when it was obvious that this would happen, so that we would have clearly defined protocols and procedures for all options which might happen”, says Holy.
