Anka Mrak Taritaš of the GLAS party ironically tweeted that “a new curse has appeared: Avoid Anka Mrak-Taritaš-sponsored motions of no confidence!” She thus referred to the fact that the motion of no confidence against Minister Horvat, she tabled in the parliament, would be on the parlaiment’s agenda next week.
Bojan Glavašević of the Green-Left parliamentary bloc, also commented that it could be (in)suitable to have that motion of no confidence next week.
According to unofficial information, the probe is about Horvat’s alleged abuse of power in the case of awarding grants to businesses when he served as economy minister, while the opposition now demands his resignation over his incompetence in conducting the post-quake reconstruction.
Krešo Beljak of the HSS party said that the news about a minister of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) cabinet being implicated in a scandal is nothing new.
Nikola Grmoja of the Bridge party writes on his Facebook account that Horvat will soon be fired and that the next minister to be fired is (Economy Minister Tomislav) Ćorić “against whom we have initiated a vote of no confidence”.
It is high time this corrupt government led by Plenković should be ousted and new elections should be called, Grmoja said.
Dalija Orešković of the Centre party called for timely and effective investigations rather than follow-ups to some old stories.
