Croatian Parliament

The Croatian Parliament or the Sabor is the unicameral representative body of the citizens of the Republic of Croatia. Under the terms of the Croatian Constitution, the Sabor represents the people and is vested with legislative power; the Sabor is composed of 151 members elected to a four-year term on the basis of direct and equal suffrage by secret ballot. Seats are allocated according to the Croatian Parliament electoral districts: 140 members of the parliament are elected in multi-seat constituencies, 8 from the minorities and 3 from the Croatian diaspora; the Sabor is presided over by a Speaker, assisted by at least one deputy speaker. The Sabor's powers are defined by the Constitution and they include: defining economic and political relations in Croatia and use of its heritage and entering into alliances; the Sabor has the right to deploy the Croatian armed forces abroad, it may restrict some constitutional rights and liberties in wartime or in cases of imminent war or following natural disasters.

The Sabor amends the borders of Croatia or the Constitution, enacts legislation, passes the state budget, declares war and decides on cessation of hostilities, adopts parliamentary resolutions and bylaws, adopts long-term national security and defence strategies, implements civil supervision of the armed forces and security services, calls referenda, performs elections and appointments conforming to the constitution and applicable legislation, supervises operations of the Government and other civil services responsible to the parliament, grants amnesty for criminal offences and performs other duties defined by the constitution. The oldest Sabor with extant records was held in Zagreb on 19 April 1273; this was the Sabor of Slavonia, not of Croatia and Dalmatia. The earliest Sabor of the Kingdom of Croatia and Dalmatia dates to 1351; the Parliament session held in 1527 in Cetin affirmed the House of Habsburg as Croatian rulers. After this, the Sabor became a regular gathering of the nobility, its official title stabilised by 1558 as the Parliament of the Kingdom of Croatia and Slavonia.

Since 1681, it has been formally called the Diet of the Kingdom of Croatia and Slavonia. In 1712, the Sabor once again invoked its prerogative to select the ruler, supporting what became the Pragmatic Sanction of 1713. Since the mid-1800s, the Sabor has met and its members have been elected. Exercising its sovereignty once again on 29 October 1918, the Sabor decided on independence from Austria-Hungary and formation of the State of Slovenes and Serbs which joined the Kingdom of Serbs and Slovenes; the Sabor did not meet between 1918 and 1945, except for an unelected Sabor convened in 1942. The Sabor reconvened as an assembly of State Anti-fascist Council for the National Liberation of Croatia in 1943 and evolved since through various structures following the November 1945 elections and several changes of the constitution. After the first multi-party elections since Communist rule and the adoption of the 1990 constitution, the Sabor was bicameral until 2001, when constitutional amendments changed it to the unicameral form used.

The Sabor, in its various forms, has represented the identity and opinions of Croats from the diets of the 9th century nobility to the modern parliament. The oldest Sabor whose records are preserved was held in Zagreb on 19 April 1273 as the Congregatio Regni totius Sclavonie generalis or Universitas nobilium Regni Sclavoniae, its decisions had legislative power. The 1527 Parliament decision was a decisive event of fundamental importance for the extension and confirmation of Croatian statehood, as described by the Constitution of Croatia; the parliament chose Ferdinand I of the House of Habsburg as the new ruler of Croatia, after centuries of Croatian personal union with Hungary. Following the entry into the Habsburg Monarchy, the Sabor became a regular noble diet, its official title stabilised by 1558 to the Parliament of the Kingdom of Croatia and Slavonia. Since 1681 it has been formally styled as the Congregatio Regnorum Croatiae, Dalmatiae et Slavoniae or Generalis Congregatio dominorum statuum et ordinum Regni.

In 1712, the Sabor once again invoked its prerogative to select the ruler, supporting what became the Pragmatic Sanction of 1713 and electing Maria Theresa of Austria as monarch. This event is specified by the Constitution of Croatia as a part of the foundation of unbroken Croatian statehood from the Middle Ages to the present. In 1848 first modern Diet with the elected representatives was summoned; the Sabor operated as the legislative authority during the existence of the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia. The events of 1848 in Europe and in the Austrian Empire represent a watershed in Croatian society and politics, given their linkage to the Croatian national revival that influenced and shaped political and social events in Croatia from that point onwards to the end of the 20th century. At the time, the Sabor advocated the implicit severance of ties with the Kingdom of Hungary, emphasizing links to other South Slavic lands within the empire. A period of neo-absolutism was followed by the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867 and Croatian–Hungarian Settlement, recognizing the limited independence of Croatia, together w
