Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, July 16, 2019 – Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković said on Tuesday that he hoped that an extraordinary parliamentary sitting with a government reshuffle on its agenda might be held by the end of this week.

“I hope that the Sabor’s meeting will be by the end of this week, the consultations are still under way,” Jandroković told reporters while entering Government House in Zagreb on Tuesday afternoon.

Prime Minister Andrej Plenković is holding consultations on his plan to rearrange his cabinet, following the resignations of two ministers and the fact that the current Foreign and European Affairs Minister, Marija Pejčinović Burić, in the autumn will assume the post of Secretary-General of the Council of Europe.

On Monday afternoon, the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, Zvonimir Frka-Petešić, said that the public would be informed of everything in a timely fashion upon the conclusion of the consultations.

Following the decision of Goran Marić to announce his resignation as State Assets Minister on Monday morning after a contract-signing ceremony in the town of Novi Vinodolski, Jandroković said that he could not comment on that as a surprise but admitted that “it has not been an easy situation”.

The resignation tendered by State Assets Minister Marić ensued after his talks with Prime Minister Andrej Plenković on that step a few days ago and it is not a surprise, the government’s public relations office says in a press release issued on Monday afternoon.

The government said that on Monday morning Marić sent his letter of resignation to PM Plenković and afterwards informed the public about that move.
