Ahead of today's debate in parliament volunteers from the People Decide initiative handed out flyers to MPs and citizens in which they demanded that the governing majority calls a referendum for a more just election system.
They claim that the Administration Ministry destroyed control lists that were the only evidence proving that 40 thousand of the signatures they collected for the referendum were invalid. Luka Mlinarić claims that they have confirmation of such information.
“This was confirmed for us by the control committee. They confirmed that they personally destroyed those control lists. Minister Kuščević claimed that they didn't and that they are located in parliament. MPs from the MOST party told us today that they were informed by the parliamentary secretary that the lists are not in parliament. Therefore it is a fact that Minister Kuščević is lying, that he is misinforming members of parliament that will debate the issue today,” said Mlinarić.
“Control lists are a platitude that has been used to name certain notes. Everything that was relevant has been preserved at the ministry and at the Apis Company, while all signatures, valid and invalid, are in Croatian parliament,” said Croatian Democratic Union MP Branko Bačić.
