For the second time in a year the opposition in parliament did not succeed in dismissing Minister of Health Milan Kujundžić.
Namely, instead of the 76 required votes, only 48 representatives from the opposition voted for the minister's dismissal, 79 representatives from the governing majority voted against.
The opposition had hoped that this would be a test of the governing coalition after the Croatian People's Party and the Milan Bandić club of representatives supported the demands of striking teachers.
It is possible that they decided to support Minister Milan Kujundžić after the Prime Minister announced salary increases for civil servants.
