Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, April 18, 2020 – The MOST party on Saturday presented amendments to the VAT Act proposing that VAT on all protective equipment preventing the spread of COVID-19 be slashed to 5%.

“We believe this is an appropriate proposal at the moment and that it would relieve the whole procurement system for those products,” the head of the opposition party’s economic council, Mislav Kraljević, told reporters.

He said the party hoped the amendment would be put on parliament’s agenda as soon as possible and that other parliamentary parties would support it.

MOST leader Božo Petrov said the party had nine bills aimed at helping businesses and citizens cope with the current crisis.

Asked to comment on the government’s dismissal of a Social Democratic Party proposal for a moratorium on loans, he said MOST had been proposing that from the start as well as a moratorium on interest rates and the suspension of enforcement proceedings.

Petrov also commented on the next parliamentary election, saying that because “the virus will last… the most adequate thing would be for the government to enable electronic and postal voting.”
