Speaker of Parliament Božo Petrov joins numerous other politicians who have been suspected of being in a conflict of interest.

Commission for Conflict of Interest Prevention decided on Friday to launch proceedings against Speaker of Parliament Božo Petrov (MOST) because he proposed his brother-in-law Pero Jerković to be a member of supervisory boards of two local municipal companies while Petrov was the Mayor of Metković, reports Jutarnji List on February 17, 2017.

According to the Commission, Petrov should have realized that his personal relationship with Jerković could cast doubt on his decision to appoint to the supervisory board a person with whom he has family ties. The proceedings against Petrov have been launched because of possible violations of the law during his term of office as Mayor of Metković, arising from the failure to protect his own credibility, impartiality and confidence of public in the authorities, by appointing Jerković to be a member of the supervisory board of a waste management company and proposing him to be a member of the supervisory board of a waterworks company.

Commission called on Peter to submit his response within 15 days.

Petrov was also reported to the Commission because, during his term as a Member of Parliament, Deputy Prime Minister and Speaker of Parliament, he simultaneously worked as a psychiatrist in a medical institution for occupational health in Metković. In this case, the Commission decided against launching the proceedings, because it was determined that the work he did as a psychiatrist in Metković from 29 December 2015 until the end of 2016 was not extensive enough to be considered a regular job.

Commission also launched proceedings against Member of Parliament Peđa Grbin (SDP), because in 2011 he was registered as procurator of a private company which he could represent in business deals, which is contrary to the provisions according to which officials are not allowed to hold positions in private companies.

Commission for Conflict of Interest Prevention also decided to initiate proceedings against Member of Parliament Vesna Pusić (HNS) who used an interview with candidates for judges of the Constitutional Court to ask one of the candidates, Željko Olujić, why he lied when he earlier said that she had not graduated from a high school.
