Right-wing opposition political party The Croatian Party of Rights (HSP) dr. Ante Starcevic, has again accused the current Croatian government of going back on its pre-election promises, this time saying that they are pandering to the European Union after the recent announcment that Croatia will now be divided into two statistical regions.
The opposition party is urging the government not to go ahead with the planned division and says it needs to stop making important decisions out of the public eye, and hold referendums on such important issues.
HSP dr. Ante Starcevic says that the government earlier vowed that it would allow each of Croatia's regions an equal ability to develop and prosper, and talked about the country being divided into five regions. The opposition party says it did not take long for the current government to show its inconsistencies, after it announced that the Croatia would be divided into two regions - Continental and Adriatic.
HSP dr. Ante Starcevic accuses the government of bowing to Europe's wishes instead of having a regional approach, it also says that with this move, the government is making the same mistakes from history (Austro-Hungarian, Italy, Yugoslavia). HSP dr. Ante Starcevic believes that the new regional divide will make the wealthier parts of Croatia (Zagreb and Istria) more wealthy, but will bring regions such as Slavonia, Dalmatian, Baranja and Lika to the verge of poverty.
