Croatian sovereignists launch campaign for referendum against euro Introduction
ZAGREB, August 28, 2021 – A deputy from the Croatian sovereignists party, Marko Milanović Litre, said on Saturday that his party was launching a campaign for a referendum on the introduction of the euro, criticizing the government for ignoring the views of the citizens on the issue.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, Croatian National Bank Governor Boris Vujčić and a host of Brussels bureaucrats have decided on their own that Croatia should join the euro zone, Milanović Liter said in a Facebook post, noting that his party had launched a campaign to protect the national currency, the kuna.
“The referendum is the only way to achieve this,” he said.
Criticizing the attitude of Plenković and his government towards referendum initiatives and what he called contempt for the role of citizens in them, Milanović Liter said that this attitude was evidenced by the recent statement by Plenković that “from a formal and legal point of view, a referendum on the introduction of the euro has already taken place in 2012 and a new one is not necessary.”
The MP said that the ballots for the 2012 referendum on Croatia’s EU membership, to which Plenković was referring, only had one question: “Are you in favor of Croatia joining the EU? Croatia to the European Union? and that the referendum campaign made no mention of joining the euro zone.
The Croatian people have the right to express their opinion on all important matters affecting their life, including decisions by which part of their hard-won sovereignty is ceded to Brussels, Milanović Litre said, adding that Croatia was ill-prepared. to EU membership.
