(E)(H) Croatian Language Officially Recognized in Vojvodina
From HRT Web site. English translation is my own. John Kraljic 
8 May. Croatian became an official language in the Yugoslav Autonomous 
Region of Vojvodina. The Parliament of Vojvodina, under the presidency 
of Nenad Canak, passed the measure by a majority vote. Croats in 
Vojvodina, depending on estimates, number between 70,000 to 200,000. 
With 84 in favor and 4 abstentions, Croatian became one of the five 
official languages in Vojvodina. Representatives of the DSS Party had 
criticisms with respect to the renewal of the Croatian weekly, Croatian 
Word, which ceased publication in 1956. Nevertheless, with 85 votes in 
favor and 5 against the Croatian community in Vojvodina again has its 
own newspaper-publishing house, Croatian Word. 
8. svibnja - Hrvatski je postao sluzbeni jezik u jugoslavenskoj 
autonomnoj pokrajini Vojvodini. Vojvodjanska skupstina, pod predsjedanjem 
Nenada Canka, odluku je donijela vecinom glasova. Hrvata u Vojvodini, 
ovisno o procjenama, ima od 70 do 200 tisuca. S 84 glasa za i cetiri suzdrzana hrvatski je jezik postao jedan od pet sluzbenih jezika u Vojvodini. 
Zastupnici DSS-a imali su primjedbe na ponovno ozivljavanje 1956. godine 
ukinutog tjednika na hrvatskome jeziku Hrvatska rijec. No, s 85 glasova 
za i pet protiv hrvatska manjinska zajednica u Vojvodini od danas 
ponovno ima svoju novinsko-izdavacku kucu Hrvatska rijec.
