Two MPs Elected with Živi Zid to Form Separate Parliament Group

Total Croatia News

Ivan Lovrinović and Ivica Mišić will not be part of the Živi Zid Parliamentary Group.

Ivan Lovrinović announced that he and Member of Parliament Ivica Mišić will try to form separate parliamentary group in Parliament, without their partners from Živi Zid. Lovrinović and Mišić are members of the Let’s Change Croatia party, which took part in the elections in a coalition with Živi Zid. They are former members of MOST who left that party shortly before Parliament was dissolved, reports N1 on September 27, 2016.

They believe that they will be joined by an MP and another member of the Živi Zid-led coalition Goran Aleksić, who is a representative of the Franak Association. At least 3 MPs are needed for a parliamentary group to be formed. Lovrinović said that this was a logical next step for his party.

“I can confirm this information. When he left MOST in previous Parliament, we also formed our own parliamentary group. Now we have our party – Let’s Change Croatia – and it is only logical that we have our own parliamentary group again. Other parties are doing the same thing. We want to promote our party, which was founded just two weeks before the elections were called”, said Lovrenović, adding that his coalition partners had agreed with the decision.

He said they would continue to cooperate with their coalition partners on those issues which were the reason why they entered into a coalition in the first place. “This is normal course of events. Parties which belonged to the Patriotic Coalition and the National Coalition also had their individual parliamentary groups”, said Lovrinović.

Živi Zid also commented on the issue, saying they were victims of a new round of attacks. “We have had an agreement for a long time that we would have two parliamentary groups, because we have enough MPs. Parties from the People’s Coalition will also have their separate parliamentary groups, and no one is saying that they have split. There is no rift and we will continue to work together. We have chosen the option to have two separate parliamentary groups because that will enable us to more often speak in Parliament. All the attacks and all the lies will not break this coalition,” wrote Živi Zid on Facebook.
