Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 11, 2019 – Union leader Krešimir Sever told Hina on Tuesday that signatures collected for a referendum petition for restoring the statutory retirement age from 67 to 65 would be submitted to the national parliament on Thursday.

The unionist said that a meeting of Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković and the initiators of the referendum campaign “67 is too much” was scheduled for Thursday and that on that occasion, the unionists would hand the collected signatures.

In order for a pension eligibility conditions referendum to be called, it is necessary to collect at least 373,568 signatures, while the unions have said that they have counted more than 700,000 signatures.

“We expect the parliament to request the checking of the validity of signatures, and we are not afraid of that as we have already erased the signatures in which we have spotted deficiencies,” Sever said.

He ruled out a possibility for the renewal of the negotiations with the government on pension eligibility conditions, saying that the unions insist on the holding of the vote.
