Zvonko Busic Committed Suicide Because Of Croats Operating Like Zdravka Busic

 

Retired General Zeljko Glasnovic and his
Independent List of candidates for Croatian Parliament are
the only political force to reel in the positive changes for all Croatians in Croatia, in BiH , in the Diaspora

Croatians in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatians in the Diaspora – at this time of General Elections for the Croatian Parliament remember this: the only candidates running for you who deserves your vote are the candidates on the Independent List Zeljko Glasnovic. List Number 10.  I say that because it is retired General Zeljko Glasnovic who has been consistent and steadfast in pursuing in the Croatian Parliament all issues that benefit all Croatian people whether they live in Croatia or abroad. Those issues deal with the absolute need of fixing the entire government system and its departments that do not but must work to benefit all Croatian people, the entire judiciary, the entire economy, the employment laws to bring in stringent measures that would finally disable nepotism by which the current laws and practices are defined and chase Croatian people into emigration. Do not be fooled in Bosnia and Herzegovina by the candidates on HDZ and other lists. They have managed to swindle you into thinking that it is HDZ who is giving you money. They have not because any financial aid to BiH coming from Croatia is the money given by Croatian taxpayers, majority of whom are on the side of General Glasnovic’s attempts to make our lives normal and difficulty-free. After all, it was General Glasnovic and his activities to benefit you who forced the HDZ government in 2017 to pay out the arrears of HVO veterans’ pensions in BiH!

Do not be fooled by the candidates from the  other lists for the 11th Electorate. Candidates on List No. 10 are the only genuine candidates for for the betterment of Croatia. As for electorates I – X, for areas within Croatia proper: do not remove from your minds that it is and it was in the past 20 years the HDZ and SDP governments who ensured that multitudes of you are brought into a corner with no choice but to emigrate from Croatia in order to secure yourselves a living outside the failing Croatia. Just take one example (of many): Croatia is rich in farmland and agricultural land; Croatian farmers could feed the entire nation and beyond throughout the year, be the supplier of food to the significant Tourism industry, and yet Croatian farmers are either leaving the country in droves due to inability to supply and sell their produce in Croatia! HDZ in BiH has done the same damage.

In April 2018 Dr Jure Buric, Mayor of the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, when Serb aggressors devastated the ancient and world heritage listed city, member of Croatian Parliament over the years after the end of Croatia’s Homeland War, handed in his longstanding membership in HDZ/Croatian Democratic Union party with a protest that said:

“You have become a ‘spiritual Chernobyl’ in the Croatian people.
We are leaving the party because we are ashamed of:
your arrogance,
your hypocrisy,
of your disparagement,
your inconsistencies,
your servitude,
your cowardice,
your greed for positions,
your renunciation of the laws of God.”

That sums up not only HDZ or SDP’s devastation of Croatian economy but also of all other political parties in Croatia or Bosnia and Herzegovina who have over time been in coalition with them – MOST/BRIDGE in particular.  Through the privatisation that occurred after the secession from Yugoslavia in both Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina in both of the countries the nations’ capital ended up in wrong hands, particularly in the hands of former communist operatives who became personally very wealthy on account of the corrupt privatisation process. Nepotism and political-affiliation driven employment market led to the sad reality of today that incompetent workers in key positions throughout secured themselves jobs that are far beyond their capacities and knowhow. 25 years or so of this means that today both Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina are sitting on a time-bomb about to explode.

Do not vote for HDZ, SDP and MOST at these elections! Your, your children’s and grandchildren’s lives will continue to plummet into poverty and desperate emigration.

And when it comes to Bosnia and Herzegovina / do not vote for HDZ, SDP or MOST. HDZ has again placed at its electoral list for 11th Electorate Zdravka Busic! Zdravka Busic has evidently for years used and abused her surname Busic and the glory for Croatian independence her late brother Zvonko Busic deserved and committed suicide becayse of people like Zdravka Busic who personally contributed to the devastation of both Croatia and Bosnia and Hercegovina when it comes to the rights of Croatian people and their welfare. Zdravka Busic used her surname for personal gain, thus securing positions in key government departments which devastated the nation and its care for the ordinary Croatian people and citizens.

In his suicide note Zvonko Busic said: “I am sorry but I cannot stand the Plato’s cave anymore…Goodbye friends, goodbye relatives, goodbye all good Croats. Forgive me for everything, stay true to our original Croatia and protect our homeland Croatia.”

In Bosnia and Herzegovina and in the Diaspora, in the 11th Electorate vote for people for whom it is proven they will never stray away from the good and hard fight for all Croatian people. The list is headed by  and has candidates who are veterans and heroes of the Homeland War, it has candidates who have for over 30 years been staunch and loud activists for equal right of all Croatian people no matter where they live, candidates who have professional experience in the developed democracies of the world in state administration, in health care, in legislation, in business development, to only name a few.

Candidates for Croatian General Elections
4th and 5th July 2020 on “Independent List Zeljko Glasnovic
From left front row! Marko Juric, Zeljko Glasnovic, Ina Vukic, Mate Knezovic Back row from left: Milena Matic, Tomislav Sunic, Marina Sunić-Zakman, Elizabeta Mađarevi, Srecko Telar
Candidates not on photo: Marko Perkovic, Martina Ćurić, Franjo Miroslav Perkovic, Marina Sabljic, Kresimir Tabak,

Vote for List No. 10 / Independent List Zeljko Glasnovic. These independent candidates have armed themselves with determination and knowledge to:

  • Change the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia and include in its Historical Foundations the role and immense value and key role of Croats from Bosnia and Herzegovina and from the Diaspora in the creation of the independent state of Croatia;

 

  • Bring about a total overhaul and fix Public Administration system so that it serves the people, all people not just the politically suitable;

 

  • Bring about a total overhaul and fix of the Judiciary;

 

  • Bring about a total overhaul and fix of the Croatian economy so that it, for example, gives priority to Croatian production of goods and produce, of government support and meaningful incentives for investments;

 

  • Overhaul and fix Health cover and protection in ways that will see larger participation for Health in the government budget and a fairer contribution to it by the individuals; of particular importance is the fact that retirees who return to Croatia to live pay through their noses for their health care insurance while in Croatia / firstly through double taxation of foreign pensions (which our candidates on List.10 for the 11th Electorate at elections are adamant to scrap) and then through exorbitant personal payment into the state Health insurance fund … HDZ and SDP have been double-dipping into the purses of returnees;

 

  • Install a new law for Elections where Croats from outside Croatia will have more seat in the parliament as deserved both because of their large numbers and because of their key role in establishing independent Croatia; bring in electronic and postal voting. General Zeljko Glasnovic with his team has ensured that the draft of this new law is now completed and ready for presentation to the Constitutional Court for assessment! I as a candidate on his list of Independents am a member of a group of Croats from the diaspora who have in April 2020 lodged at the Constitutional Court of Croatia a claim for the assessment of the existing law on elections as to its discriminatory elements against Croats living abroad. We mean to achieve results!

 

  • Bring in lustration related law via the completed draft of legislation regarding access to information; General Zeljko Glasnovic with his team has ensured that the draft of this new law is also now completed and ready for presentation to the Constitutional Court for assessment!

 

  • Bring about an overhaul and fix of the current legislation on rights of Homeland War veterans, both in Croatia (HV) and in BiH (HVO). General Zeljko Glasnovic’s actions are particularly known in the field of ensuring the status and pensions of HVO veterans in BiH are secured and commensurate with their enormous and self-sacrificing role during the Homeland War for freedom and continued existence of Croats in BiH as constitutional people of BiH!

These are the realities of today’s Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. While we are in the times of electioneering for parliamentary seats these facts contained in this article remain and must guide everyone’s hand in voting at the upcoming elections. Otherwise the HDZ, SDP, MOST… smoke screens will remain and choke every chance our future generations have at being productive according to their personal merit and effort, at being treated with respect and equal rights and access to those rights! Vote for List No. 10 in the 11th Electorate. Our hard work, dedication, knowledge, relevant for progress professional experience – our steadfastness in achieving positive results despite the unfriendly and aggressive climate current and past governments and their followers have been hitting us with is YOUR Passport to a much better and positive future for all.

And The Dream Team For Croatia’s Better Future Emerges

General Elections Croatia 2020
I am extremely proud to be a candidate on the independent list for the 11th Electorate headed by Zeljko Glasnovic” (Ina Vukic)

This blog portal has been my virtual home for almost 9 years and here I have had the amazing honour of meeting, corresponding with and feeling the vibes of thousands upon thousands of good people throughout the world who, like me, want the best for Croatia, a country many have never seen but heard of. People who understand what it means to fight for self-preservation and independence like Croatia had during 1990’s and paid in rivers of blood for that human right and privilege. People who are actively interested in what happens to a former communist country when it sets its sights on democracy, who have been a part of this virtual global family that congregates in this blog portal, have gifted me with immeasurable pride and courage to pursue the truth, to make a positive difference in the process and aspirations within democratisation of a nation formerly imprisoned and enslaved by the communist regime. And so, I thank you all and look forward to many more years of this wonderful virtual family and community.

It is today my honour to say here that I am extremely proud to be a candidate on the Independent List of retired general Zeljko Glasnovic at the upcoming general elections for the Croatian Parliament for the 11th Electorate, i.e., for Croats living in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the diaspora.

I, we, need to have you in our corner and if you are a voter in Croatian general elections, we need your vote, your voice. So please vote on 4th or 5th July!

Keeping the community of Croatians living outside Croatia together in its endeavours to pursue democratisation of Croatia, to promote and ensure the rights of Croatians living outside Croatia and their wellbeing was what general Glasnovic did during his last mandate in the Croatian Parliament. His voice for the Croatian community abroad was always loud and clear. He was in that mandate about decommunisation and democratisation of Croatia even when shunned by the mainstream media for it.  More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving so that Croatia can truly prosper away from the suffocating remnants of communism that include corruption, nepotism, employment on political allegiances, discriminatory legislation, suffocating red tape in services to citizens. To achieve this our voice needs to be louder and stronger and that can only be achieved through ensuring adequate seats in parliament.

And I will be proud and grateful if we have you in our corner, with your vote!

General Zeljko Glasnovic has put together a Dream Team for Croatians living abroad, whose goal includes the development of a fully functional democratic Croatian state. And I am a part of that team! I was a part of the Dream Team from the diaspora that moved heaven and earth during 1990’s to help Croatia achieve sovereignty or independence from communist Yugoslavia. That same Dream Team still has its role in finishing the job of helping Croatia become a fully functional democratic state for all its people.

These are the candidates on general Zeljko Glasnovic’s electoral list of independent candidates for Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the diaspora:

  1. Željko Glasnović
  2. Mate Knezović
  3. Ina Vukić
  4. Tomislav Sunić
  5. Marko Jurić
  6. Srećko Telar
  7. Elizabeta Mađarević
  8. Marko Perković
  9. Krešimir Tabak
  10. Milena Matić
  11. Mirna Sunić-Žakman
  12. Martina Ćurić
  13. Franjo Miroslav Perković
  14. Marina Sabljić

The Croatian Electoral Commission (DIP) has on 16 June 2020 confirmed the list as an official list competing at the upcoming general election for parliamentary seats. The 11th Electorate in which this list will run only has 3 seats available in parliament, not enough by a long shot – diaspora deserves many more! But that is a story weaved into law by HDZ and SDP governments and the story rests of discrimination against Croats living abroad by those governments. They must not be given a chance to continue with damage to the Croatian nation.

Why do many call this List a “Dream Team”? Because on it are people who are specially chosen to work together and are considered to be the best at what they do in their everyday life: fighting for and promoting well being of all Croatian people (no matter where they live) and their nation in every aspect of living and life and they are led by retired general Zeljko Glasnovic. I am extremely proud to be a part of this team!

If you are a citizen of Croatia, please vote on 4th or 5th July 2020. Croatian citizens with residence in the Croatian diaspora and Bosnia and Herzegovina can register to vote ahead of the general elections by filling in the appropriate Form for that and providing a copy of Croatian citizenship ID such as passport or Domovnica/ photo ID by 24th June. Citizens of Croatia living abroad can also register to vote at the polling booth on polling the above days in July.

For your convenience please click this link for a copy of the Registration to Vote Form, print it, fill it in, email or fax or take it to you nearest Croatian Embassy or Consulate BY 24 JUNE and contribute positively to the outcome of general elections.

Thank you! Ina Vukic

 

 

Croats Abroad Seeking Correction of the Croatian Constitution

Croatian Constitutional Court Building in Zagreb

It’s General Elections time for the Croatian Parliament once again! General Elections will be held on 4th and 5th of July 2020. As in previous election campaigns the Croatian and the public in general will hear many promises people want to hear from the previously alternating HDZ (Croatian Democratic Union) and SDP (Social Democratic Party) governments. Be aware and be wary! Bitter and disappointing lessons from their promises have hopefully been learned and Croatian voters, by voting them out, will have the power to reel in real positive changes for the Croatian people.

Real positive changes are needed in processes to stamp out the suffocating corruption in Croatia, which has seen the economy tumbling and hundreds of thousands of young and middle-aged people leaving Croatia in search for a fairer and better life; they have in the past decade gone to Ireland, to Germany, to the UK, to the USA, Canada, Australia… The show of false willpower to deal head-on with corruption around the times of general elections has become as predictable as clockwork when it comes to HDZ and SDP! The latest is the theatrical arrest on 30 May of some 12 people (some leading HDZ figures such as Josipa Rimac, theatrically expelled from the party a couple of days ago) associated with long-standing bribery, lucrative contract recipients favouritism and influencing, illegal dealings, etc., within Croatian Forests (Hrvatske Šume)the government funded and propped company).

Another example of HDZ and SDP former government, since 2010, malfeasance is related to official Croatia’s diaspora and its rights as citizen of the country. Not only has the number of parliamentary seats representing Croats of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Croatian diaspora been cut from 12 to only 3, but the reasonable ease of access to polling booths at times of elections has been drastically bastardised. Polling places limited to largely inaccessible diplomatic-consular missions and those within community settings such as clubs – banned! Then comes the accessibility issue related to electronic and postal voting.

“Nothing doing!” Nothing is happening!

One of SDP’s leading politicians Arsen Bauk stated recently (April 2020) that SDP is against electronic/postal voting, that it will not support electronic and postal voting for Croatian citizens abroad “because that would increase the influence of Croatians living outside Croatia on election results…”!

HDZ’s Croatia’s Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, on the other hand, said a couple of weeks ago that there isn’t enough time now to introduce electronic/postal voting. And yet, he and HDZ party, as part of their election promise for 2016 elections promised to introduce electronic/postal voting!

Do not believe in promises given at elections by HDZ and SDP because the proven fact remains that they do not keep their promises to voters!

Both HDZ and SDP during their past government mandates could have instigated a crucially relevant examination of the relevant parts of the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia affecting Croatians living abroad and their voting rights. They did not! Nor will they because the less Croats living abroad vote, the more powerful are their cronies within Croatia. Regardless of difficult accessibility to polling booths abroad I do trust Croatian citizens living abroad will vote in large numbers at the coming elections.

For about a year now, a group of Croatians, mainly living abroad, has been working on a project designed to bring about changes to the Constitution by the Constitutional court’s examining of the legislation (Act) relating to the election of Parliamentary Representatives for Croatians living outside Croatia. The leading organisers and instigators of this project are the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Diaspora and Homeland (HAZUDD) with dr Josip Stjepandic as its president and Croatian World Congress (CWC) with Vinko Sabljo, president. Represented by attorney Mato Knezovic from Zagreb the signatories to the case filed in the Constitutional Court in Croatia include members of HAZUDD Board (Josip Stjepandic [president], Ina Vukic [Vice-president], Emilija Herceg [Secretary]), members of CWC Board (Vinko Sabljo [president], Igor Lackovic [Main Secretary] and Diana Vukusic [Treasurer])  and 24 other Croatians living abroad and in Croatia.

We aim to show the grotesque injustice in Article 45 of the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia:

Article 45: “All Croatian citizens who have reached the age of eighteen years (voters) shall be entitled to universal and equal suffrage in elections for the Croatian Parliament, the President of the Republic of Croatia and the European Parliament and in decision-making procedures by national referendum, in compliance with law.

In elections for the Croatian Parliament, voters who do not have registered domicile in the Republic of Croatia shall be entitled to elect three representatives in compliance with law.

In elections for the Croatian Parliament, the President of the Republic of Croatia and the European Parliament and in decision-making procedures by national referendum, suffrage shall be exercised in direct elections by secret ballot, wherein voters who do not have registered domicile in the Republic of Croatia shall vote at polling stations in the premises of diplomatic-consular offices of the Republic of Croatia in the foreign countries in which they reside.

In elections for the Croatian Parliament, the President of the Republic of Croatia and the European Parliament and in decision-making procedures by national referendum, the Republic of Croatia shall secure exercise of suffrage for its citizens with registered domicile in the Republic of Croatia who are outside of its borders during elections such that they may vote in diplomatic-consular offices of the Republic of Croatia in the foreign countries in which they located or in some other manner as specified by law.”

Press release 20 May 2020 issued by the attorney Mato Knezovic on behalf of the 30 Croatians before the Constitutional Court in Croatia included the following:

“Today, 30 Croatian citizens from 6 European countries, as well as Canada, the USA and Australia, submitted to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Croatia a Proposal for the assessment of Art. 6 and 8 of the Act on the Election of Representatives to the Croatian Parliament with the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia, international treaties and EU anti-discrimination provisions.

Among them are leading members of the Croatian World Congress and the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in the Diaspora and the homeland.

As is a well-known fact, Croatian citizens who do not reside in the Republic of Croatia have the right to 3 members of the Croatian Parliament, and their polling stations are exclusively diplomatic and consular premises of the Republic of Croatia abroad. The Ministry of Administration has 883,042 registered voters who do not reside in the Republic of Croatia. Their percentage is 19.15%, and they elect only 3 Representatives, or 1.98% of the total number of Representatives.

At the same time, the Czech and Slovak national minorities elected a member of parliament from only 1,590 voters. The proposal, which is based on an expert analysis of three professors of constitutional and public law (Marc Gjidara, Zvonimir Lauc, Mato Palic), points to several decisions of the Constitutional Court and the European Court of Human Rights on discrimination against these Croatian citizens.

It also shows the illegality and unconstitutionality of other provisions of the said law. Since the said law and constitutional provisions, which limited the number of representatives of the said Croatian citizens to 3, have no basis in the basic constitutional principles and international legal acts, the applicants consider that they are severely discriminated against and that such a law indicates the illegitimacy of the entire electoral process, basic constitutional principles, European acquis communautaire and international treaties to which the Republic of Croatia is a signatory.

By this act, Croatian citizens who do not reside in the territory of the Republic of Croatia show that they are not willing to accept the constant harassment, insult and change of laws to their detriment, but also to the detriment of overall Croatian national interests and rights…”

We hope to succeed in this application to the Constitutional Court in Croatia since HDZ and SDP governments have not moved a finger to remove the grotesque injustices towards Croatians living abroad. Wish us luck! But in any case, we will have a reply from the Constitutional Court as to why if our application is not successful. Then, we can move onto the next platform available within the European Union and pursue justice.  It is not just a matter affecting Croatians living abroad, it is, more to the point, a matter for all Croatian people as Croatia is for years seeking to rely on Croats from abroad to return to Croatia and thus help it become a better place to live in.
