ISTRIAN PARTY LEAVES CROATIAN GOVERNMENT. Making good on repeated
threats to leave the six-party coalition government, Ivan Jakovcic,
Minister for European Integration and head of the Istrian Democratic
Assembly (IDS-DDI), said in Pazin that the IDS has decided to leave
the government, "Novi List" reported on 4 June. The IDS charges that
the Zagreb government is almost as hostile to regional autonomy as
former President Franjo Tudjman was. Matters came to a head recently
over the IDS's plans to raise the legal status of Italian and make
Istria officially bilingual (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 16 May 2001). In
related news, Prime Minister Ivica Racan said in Zagreb that early
elections are possible, RFE/RL's South Slavic Service reported on 2
June. PM
