“The public administration, headed by the government, is living in a parallel world, as shown by the response to the earthquake in Petrinja and Sisak. Everyone could see that citizens privately organised themselves faster and better than many of the state services,” Bartulica told a press conference in the parliament building.
“The services were late and the entire response by the government was lame, while reproaching volunteers was insane,” he added.
Substantiating his claim that the government was detached from reality, he cited the case of Zagreb where owners of properties damaged in the 22 March 2020 earthquake were required to submit over 90 documents.
Bartulica went on to say that vaccination against coronavirus was going too slow and that MPs should not be given a priority during the vaccination process.
“We do not think that the MPs are a vulnerable group compared, for example, to health workers,” he said, adding that the Homeland Movement lawmakers would not undergo vaccination today.
