Zagreb City Assembly deputies on Tuesday rejected by a majority vote Mayor Milan Bandic's draft amendments to the city's urban development plan (GUP) after they previously rejected by a majority vote 11 amendments to GUP put forward by the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ).
Of 49 deputies, 18 voted for the amended GUP and 31 voted against.
Deputies previously voted on individual amendments and rejected them all, with 42 votes against and seven in favour.
Bandic's draft amendments to GUP were rejected after deputies from his party first voted against amendments put forward by Bandic's coalition partner, the HDZ, which prompted the HDZ to vote against Bandic's amendments. After this, opposition deputies, who had proposed a referendum on amendments to GUP, withdrew that item from the agenda of the city assembly session.
