ZAGREB, June 14 (Hina) – “Women rule” is the message of a left-green coalition led by the We Can! platform which presented outside parliament on Sunday the women who will head the coalition’s slates in six constituencies and their programme.

Sandra Bencic said that in their communities the women heading the slates worked on improving the lives of vulnerable groups, the economy, community building and solidarity within them.

“The HDZ and the SDP each have one woman heading their slates, and we have six as well as full gender parity. We also have a programme which advocates gender equality, which is more important than gender representation on a slate,” said Danijela Dolenec.

She said the coalition’s MPs would fight for the right to legal, free and available abortion and against the subsequent conscientious objection, for the implementation of the convention against domestic violence, and for LGBT equality, including their right to foster and adopt children.

Rada Boric said the last Croatian parliament had less than 13% of women, whereas their representation in European parliaments ranged from 30% to 50%.

Katarina Peovic said class conflicts would intensify in the autumn and that citizens now had the chance to elect those who protected workers’ rights and who would insist on higher wages and better working conditions.

She said wages in Croatia were lower and the number of work hours higher than the European average, that 90% of contracts were fixed-term and that 50% of those were signed by young people, and that 14% of the Croats who emigrated were working-age and that many were women.

Natasa Hlaban underlined the need to pay greater attention to people with disabilities, saying it was necessary to amend laws on their rights.

Srdj is a City to run in a parliamentary election with We Can!

The Srd is a City citizens’ slate said in Dubrovnik it was running in the July 5 parliamentary election with the coalition led by We Can!

The head of the We Can! slate in Constituency 1, Tomislav Tomasevic, said the coalition would fight in parliament against harmful laws, regulations and projects, and for a green and resilient economy, green reindustrialisation and renewables.
