The Most party files second attempt to have incumbent Health Minister Milan Kujundžić removed from his position.
Most party president Božo Petrov announced on Monday that a request had been sent to parliament seeking the minister's immediate dismissal via a vote of no confidence.
The party leadership said they expected Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković to call an extraordinary session of parliament to debate the request within thirty days.
Political secretary Nikola Grmoja said the move had to do with the failings of the healthcare system under Minister Kujundžić: "Everybody knows the waiting lists are getting longer and longer, debts are greater and greater, and key reforms are not being implemented. During our first request, we outlined some fifty reasons why the minister should be removed."
Also, the party said that a decision passed last week by the Parliamentary Committee on the Constitution, Standing Orders and Political System, that extraordinary sessions would not be held during Parliament's summer break to address opposition motions for votes of no confidence in government ministers, was in fact unconstitutional. The Most party has called upon the Constitutional Court to immediately make a ruling on the constitutionality of that decision.
