Croatian parliament dissolved, polls in December

ZAGREB - The Croatian parliament was dissolved on Friday, as 135 out of 137 MPs at the session voted in favour of the proposition, one MP refrained from voting while representative of the Roma and other minorities Nazif Memedi was against the dissolution.

After the adoption of the decision to dissolve the parliament, Croatian President Ivo Josipovic can call elections for the new convocation as of Friday and the elections will probably be scheduled for December 4.

The sixth convocation of the Croatian parliament, which was dissolved on Friday, was constituted on January 11, 2008, when it was established that MPs gathered around the then head of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) Ivo Sanader constitute the parliament majority, and Sanader was later appointed prime minister.

The convocation of the parliament so far consisted of 153 MPs, but the new parliament will have a total of 151 MPs due to the fixed number of MPs from the Diaspora.
