Zagreb - Parliament Speaker Josip Leko told Croatian members of the European Parliament (EP) on Monday that their task, as well as that of the Croatian parliament, was to bring the EP closer to Croatian citizens, acquainting them about its importance for Croatia and them.
He was addressing the politicians who won seats in the EP in a May 25 election. "I expect you to represent Croatia and Croatian citizens in the best way you can," he said, congratulating them on their election and wishing them success in their work.
Croatia has 11 MEPs - six from a coalition led by the opposition Croatian Democratic Union, four from the ruling coalition, and one from the opposition ORaH party. (Hina)
