During a special session Parliament Speaker Željko Reiner called on lawmakers and all citizens to promote togetherness and not to be divided along any whatsoever "dividing lines."

- Instead of division I call on fellow deputies and all Croatian citizens to promote and support togetherness because during these difficult times, the wise, responsible and well-intentioned stick together and do not divide along any whatsoever imaginary lines of division for reasons that may exist objectively or merely for daily politicking or due to current trivial interests, Reiner said.

- Parliament was and will remain the guardian of Croatian statehood. Let's hope that it will always remain a shield of democratic freedom and rights, Reiner said greeting all Croatian citizens for Croatian Sabor Day, which he described as "the day of parliamentary democracy!".

Many distinguished guests attended the session, including the top state leadership, representatives of religious groups, diplomatic corps, trade-unions and non-governmental organizations. (Hina)

30 May - Croatian Parliament Day

SaborThe first free, multiparty democratic elections were conducted in Croatia in the spring of 1990, and democratic Croatian Parliament was constituted on May 30, 1990 based on the electoral results.

First parlimentary sitting of the new Parliament of the Socialist Republic of Croatia was attended by numerous guests from homeland and diaspora, as well as representatives of religious communities.  Elected members of the parliament voted Žarko Domljan as the Speaker of the parliament, and Ivica Percan, Stjepan Sulimanac and Vladimir Šeks, as Deputy Speakers.

Stjepan Mesić was elected the President of the Executive Council of the Parliament, and Franjo Tuđman the President of the Presidency of the Socialist Republic of Croatia. In his first speech to newly elected members of the Parliament, Tuđman emphasized that constitution of the first multiparty parliament, represents the first step towards return of Croatian people and it's country to European, civilized, political, cultural and economical tradition.

Until the enacment of  the Provisions of the National Observance, Holiday and Memorial Day Act in 2001, the day of  the first parlimentary sitting was celebrated as Statehood day. Since 2001, 30th May has been marked as Croatian Parliament Day - a Day that reminds us all of strategic role of the Croatian Parliament, highest representative and legislative body of all Croatian citizens, irreplaceable mid point institution of every democratic country.
