CROATIAN PARTY OF RIGHTS 1861
The Croatian People is the independent national unity; It is a Nation by itself. In its national meaning it is neither identical to any other nation, nor is it a part of any other nation.
The Croatian people is indigenous people, and beside its ethnic origin, in its modern sense of the word, it is composed of all Croatian citizens, regardless to their ethnic origin, and by their conscience and by their commitment they form Croatian nation.
The Croatian people by themselves and as the political nation have right to the full sovereignty and the self government.
Article 1Croatian people is one of the oldest European nations, the people who struggled through various historical times and conditions, fighting permanently for its independence and sovereign state.
Settled to the today' s territory, the Croatian people formed their own state community in which they lived independently up to the year 1102. Loosing the independence and sovereignty, the Croatian people lived for eight centuries under strange government, keeping however their national distinctiveness and the idea of the right on their own state.
The pivot of the national conscience of the Croatian people and the idea of the right on their own state from 1861 is the Croatian Party of Rights and its founder dr. Ante Starčević. The Croatian Party of Rights is the oldest party of the Croatian people. It was banned in 1929.
The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 is the political organisation which continues this political way on the basic principles established by Dr. Ante Starčević, in order to establish completely independent Croatian State on its entire ethnical and historical territory.
Article 2The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 is explicitly against establishment or creation of any kind of new Yugoslavia or Great Serbia and in this sense it will always support the defensive alliance of the victims of the Serbian aggression.
Article 3The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 is supporting the establishment of the independent and happy Croatia, which will be built on the modern democratic foundations in the spirit of freedom, in which the main principles will be the reign of rights and the protection of human rights.
In order to achieve this noble objective, the Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 is starting from the principles of the Croatian right to have its own state, it supports the political attitudes struggling for the full independence of the Croatian State Community, it relies on the glorious Croatian experience and is taking care of the modern needs of the Croatian people.
Article 4The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will struggle for introduction of the principles of the constitutional state and civilised society, and for the entire protection of human rights of all its citizens, regardless to their religion or ethnic origin, on basis of their Croatian belonging.
In realisation of this important objective, the Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will follow the provisions of the early English, American and French declarations in the spirit of freedom, and especially on basis which have been comprised in the General Declaration of Human Rights, as the part of the United Nations Charter, International Treaty on Civil and Political Rights, International Treaty on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and other important international documents.
Article 5The systematic oppression of Croatian people and its difficult material situation, caused mass emigration of Croats, both from the Republic of Croatia and from its historical parts like Bačka, Banat, Boka Kotorska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sandžak and Srijem.
The consequences of such movements result in a terrifying fact that one half of Croats live abroad having no influence on the destiny of their parent country.
Therefore the Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will endeavour to make possible for all Croats to retum to their ancestral hearths and to be able to contribute, as much as possible, to the reconstruction and flourish of our beautiful country.
Article 6The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will eagerly work on total removal of consequences of the ideological and political dictatorship of the Yugoslav and Bolshevist Socialism.
The Croatian Party of Rights - 1891 will in its acting, permanently request that the constitutional state and its normal operation prevent the creation of political organisations based on the violent and inhuman principles.
Article 7The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will support the keeping and development of the national consciousness, the Croatian language and civilisation.
The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will permanently struggle for the welfare and the ethic transformation of the Croatian people, for restoration and consolidation of its general human values, as well as for application of morality in the complete social life.
Article 8The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will support the protection of the rights of the minvrity groups and those groups of the Croatian citizens who, beside their belonging to the Croatian nation, feel their belonging to a certain ethnic group or minority group, and all in accordance with European standards in protection of the rights of minority groups.
POLITICALLY CONSTRUCTIVE PRINCIPLES
Article 9The Croatian people is the bearer of the unlimited, inalienable, indivisible, unassignable and unexpendable sovereignty.
Article 10On basis of the established existence of the uninterrupted sequence of the Croatian statehood and clear aspirations of the Croatian people for state self- determination, the Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 primary interceded for complete establishment of the state power within the internationallv recognised borders of the Republic of Croatia.
Respecting the international recognition of the Republic of Croatia and the Republic of Bvsnia and Herzegovina, the Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will support as close as possible co-ordination and creation of confederate or federal state communities between Republic of Croatia and the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with respect of subjectivity of both countries.
Under the new circumstances when the Croatian historical and ethnic space has been divided into two sovereign countries, the Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 will support their federal or confederate unification by peoples' free will, with motto: "Croatia up to river Drina, BiH up to Adriatic Sea."
Article 11The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 opposes to every state or any other confederate association, which objective would be restoration of Yugoslavia or any other similar or forced association.
We consider the every acknowledgement of the constitutional right to any other ethnic group in the Republic of Croatia is contrary to the interests and aspirations of the Croatian people, and therefore the Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 does not accept the federalisation of Croatia and similar ideas.
The Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 struggles for creation of a unique Croatian state which would be divided into counties and those in districts and municipalities. The Croatian state would control army, the borders, one part of the internal affairs, currency and other affairs of state, while the counties would control police, education, one part of financial affairs. The districts and municipalities would have authorisations which would overpass those of the present counties. In the decentralised state administration, in the application and the respect of the local legislation, the Croatian Party of Rights - 1861 sees a guarantee of the complete and unique Croatia and a dam against tendencies which reject the idea of the integral and undivided Croatia.
