Could there be a change in Croatia’s constitution coming up shortly, allowing for the President’s powers to increase? Results of a recent survey have been published by Croatian daily newspaper Vecernji list, which asked citizens if they thought that the President’s powers were too restrictive.
53% of those surveyed believed that the President of Croatia had too little power, whilst only 2% believed he had too much power. Interestingly today daily newspaper Novi list revealed that the survey was ordered and paid for by the office of the President Ivo Josipovic. 78% of those surveyed believed current president Josipovic deserved another mandate.
