Croatia: Covid situation debated in Parliament

Croatian MP Renata Sabljar-Dracevac (Social Democrats) said Wednesday that she no longer had confidence in the national crisis management team COVID-19 and called for his resignation.

Due to the high mortality rate from COVID-19 and extreme irresponsibility, we call for the resignation of the national crisis management team COVID-19 and the appointment of serious experts who would restore the trust of citizens with sustainability and expertise, achieving thus a better vaccination. norma, said the deputy.

According to unofficial data, Croatia has 4,400 new cases today, there have been 30 deaths in the last 48 hours and the number of active cases is almost 18,000 yesterday, Sabljar-Dracevac said.

Her colleague, Social Democrat MP Sabina Glasovac, said on Wednesday that measures against the spread of COVID-19 were inconsistent and illogical, calling on Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic for the decision to close schools without explanation.

“We still do not know on what basis the measures are being approved. Is it based on the number of new infections or hospitalizations? Or those that end up with respirators? Or based on the number of deaths? ” said Glasovac in parliament.

Many other issues were discussed at the Assembly session. Hrvoje Zekanovic of the Croatian Sovereigns called on lawmakers to sign a petition for a referendum on the introduction of the euro.

“It is time to say that we are close to the people, that we are not politicians but activists,” he said, adding that the will of the people was more important than protecting the national currency and that the people should decide on key issues. ”

Dragana Jeckov of the Serbian Independent Democratic Party criticized a Vukovar City Council conclusion on the need to expand the rights of ethnic Serbs.

She said that every year at the end it is said that the level of tolerance between Croats and Serbs “has not progressed and that conditions have not been created for the expansion of rights”.

“This year the reasoning sounds bad, which is that we have to wait for the census data to see exactly how many Serbs live in Vukovar,” Jeckov added.

As long as the current city administration remains in power, the conditions to extend the rights of Serbs will not be met because the collective guilt is also attributed to those born in 1997, 2007 and 2017, she said.

“Fighting Serbs and portraying Serbs as Turkish heads is the basis of politics in Vukovar,” Jeckov said, adding that Serbs wanted only what was due to them under the law and the constitution.

She said city leaders continue to stigmatize Serbs. “They make the measure of their patriotism the treatment of Serbs to be recognized as the only true patriots because they are always and strictly against everything Serbian. Serbs are a threat to everyone in Vukovar, with the exception of local elections.

Jeckov said it was not just about Cyrillic signs in public buildings, but also about proportional representation and rights to education and housing. “I’m much more concerned that the climate was better in 1997,” she added.
