The first successful referendum initiative launched by the citizens in Croatia

Croatian Times

Friends of the Earth Croatia has applauded the Ministry of Public Administrationís decision to allow a public referendum on a planned golf course in Srdj, near Dubrovnik.

This is the first time Croatian citizens have won the right for a referendum.

A spokesman for the group said: "When a project which has been aggressively promoted for six years, as Razvoj Golf has been, fails to convince citizens, in spite of the time and money spent, about its advantages and benefits it brings to the table, it is clear that there are no benefits or advantages whatsoever and unacceptable pressure on citizens and their elected representatives is the only chance for pushing such a project forward."††††
