MOST Wants President to Propose Specific Measures Instead of Criticism

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, January 24, 2018 – The leader of the opposition MOST party, Božo Petrov, commented on criticisms which President Kolinda Grabar Kitarović addressed to the government on Wednesday, saying that the President should “put her money where her mouth is.”

“I have nothing against drawing attention to problems, because attention should be drawn to all that is bad in Croatia and all that should be changed for the better. I would only advise the President to put her money where her mouth is and take advantage of all the options at her disposal. She can call a government meeting, she can warn them and she can present her initiatives and her bills,” Petrov told the press in the parliament building.

He called on the government and the President to propose concrete measures and legislative initiatives. “I’ve had enough of all these shows. They are using their positions to draw attention to certain anomalies, but are not using their positions to correct those anomalies. They should stop being hypocritical and should finally start doing their jobs,” Petrov said.

During her visit to Krapina on Wednesday, Grabar-Kitarović said that the better economic indicators should also be seen in ordinary people’s bank accounts. “Macroeconomic indicators have been improving as of late and this should be welcomed. But if the state is delivering better results, then citizens must be able to feel that in their bank accounts. There are a lot of people with blocked accounts. The government must find a way to unblock their accounts and pass a new Enforcement Law,” the President said.

She also stressed the need for swift, effective and systematic measures for demographic revival. “I welcome what has been done so far, but that is not enough. Measures should be put in place as soon as possible to increase job security, especially for pregnant women and mothers of underage children, and to reduce fixed-term work contracts to a minimum.”
