Maybe we should, at least judging from the reaction SDP MPs ovke Ingrid Anticevic Marinovic.

“Appointments to the EU Parliament must be political, but lawmakers must also satisfy the criteria of expertise and provided important knowledge of foreign languages,” said Jovanovic, and continued:
“The issue of the English language is important, but I can tell you, based on their experiences in the Council of Ministers, that neither ministers nor all MEPs do not know English. Croatian Parliament in the EU will be the official language and each agent who will represent Croatia in the liquid will be able to compete for Croatian Croatian attitude. important thing is to know another language in order to communicate with colleagues, “said Jovanovic.
