Jandroković: MPs Won’t Convene in Parliament House Due to Damage

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, March 22, 2020 – Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković on Sunday said that given the damage to Parliament House in the wake of the earthquake that hit Zagreb this morning, sessions cannot be held there until further notice.

Parliament House in Zagreb’s Upper Town has suffered significant damage in the earthquake and the electricity, water and gas have been turned off.

“The damage is quite extensive. Walls and stairways have cracked on the upper floor and one section of the roof has been destroyed. The courtyard part of Parliament House has incurred more damage than the front,” Jandroković told reporters.

Seeing that the earthquake occurred during the weekend, the Sabor was not in session and only members of the guard were in the building at the time of the earthquake.

“We will see what the damage is. However, that is not the main thing at the moment and it is more important to assist our people who have been left without a roof over their head,” Jandroković said.

“We will see what we will do, whether we will convene in the small chamber or look for other premises,” Jandroković said, adding that he was confident a solution would be found for the legislature to sit and continue adopting laws.

Parliament was supposed to sit on Wednesday.
