SDP chief: Outgoing government can't move amendments to violence prevention act

Social Democratic Party (SDP) chief Zoran Milanovic said on Monday that the outgoing government had no powers to propose amendments to the Act on the Prevention of Violence at Sporting Events.

"I don't know if Tihomir Oreskovic is a caretaker prime minister or a resigning prime minister ... They don't have the power to propose that, they are the outgoing government, a government that is in neutral gear, practically barely with a pulse, and they can't propose anything," Milanovic told the press in parliament.

Commenting on penalties for last week's violence of some football fans at a Croatia-Czech Republic Euro 2016 match, Milanovic said that the jurisdiction for such cases must be defined first. "This is in the territorial jurisdiction of France," Milanovic said, adding that those people must be arrested and punished.

Asked if the outgoing government had the power to appoint a new group of experts to deal with the curricular reform, Milanovic reiterated that the reform was part of the science and education strategy.
