Croatian parliament marked its day today in memory of May 30th, 1990, when the first democratically chosen, multi-party parliament was constituted.
Until 2001, the day was celebrated as Statehood Day, while the issue of reinstating the day again next year was brought up by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.
“It is our stance, considering the fact that next year will be the 30th anniversary of May 30th and the constitution of the first democratically elected Croatian parliament, that it would be an opportunity, at our initiative as the government, to take a fresh look at key state holidays, and for this day, which I think is most accepted and liked among Croatian citizens and the Croatian people, to once again be proposed as Statehood Day,” said the Prime Minister.
