We expect and demand from all executive, legislative and judiciary institutions a public statement and responsibility for implementation of all suggested priority benchmarks that require urgent undertaking in order to ensure that the Croatian citizens will have their rights protected within Croatia’s accession to the EU.

We expect from the Government and the National Committee to submit to the Croatian public a Report on Benchmark Implementation for Closing Negotiations on Chapter 23 that was sent to the EC on Friday, February 10, 2011. We also request for all negotiation standpoints that don’t have a justification for a confidential status, especially in the final stage of negotiation to be publicized.
