Six MPs clock inexcusable absences from Parliament in February

Zagreb - Six members of the national parliament were absent from parliamentary sessions in February, without a justified excuse, the same as the month before.

In February, when parliament sat for a total of 13 days, independent MP Tomislav Saucha had three unjustified absences.

Lawmaker Mladen Madjer, a former Croatian Peasant Party (HSS) official who crossed the floor to Milan Bandić's Labour and Solidarity Party, missed two days.

Stevo Culej of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ). Ivan Lovrinović of the Let's Change Croatia party, Ivana Ninčević Lesandrić of the Bridge party and Independent MP Marko Vučetić each missed one days.

Fines for inexcusable absences were introduced following a motion by the Bridge party and in practice that means deducting 150 kuna for each day of absence from an MP's flat-rate allowance of 1,500 kuna per month.
