Along with an eleven day Easter break MPs will also take a break for most of May due to the elections for European Parliament.
As of Friday MPs are on their Easter break. They will return to their benches in eleven days. However, due the elections for European Parliament at the end of May, work in parliament will once again be put on hold from May 10th until the election is completed. The goal of the break is to avoid politicians from using parliament as a place to campaign for European Parliament.
"A number of our colleagues have been campaigning for some time now. So, I'm afraid that when we convene our new session after Easter it will definitely be hindered by the attempts of some of our colleagues to use the session to campaign for European Parliament. We will nonetheless do our best to maintain decorum and conduct debates," said Branko Bačić the chair of the HDZ bench in parliament.
