Hello.

Dispute is not just about Bay of Piran but also about many places in land, 4 of them are also in the east.

Results are very similar to general distribution between supporters and opponents of govorment. And around Piran are very strong supporters of goverment because of historical reasons and because of very large number of immigrants from ex-Yugoslavia.

And what is dispute about?
Communist regime in 1956 decide to take Savudrija and Kaštel from municipality of Piram in Slovenia to Croatian municipality of Buje.  Residents were protested but the government refused it with argument that "all this is Yugoslavia". Kaštel and Savudrija were part of Piran from 14. century and in past census there were mostly just Slovenes and Italians (Kaštel 1880: 863 Slovenes,1 other, 1890 283 Slovenes, 754 Italians, 1990 159 Slovenes, 1019 Italians 1 other, 1910 362 Slovenes, 812 Italians, 71 Croats) and Savudrija (1880 41 Slovenes, 231 Italians, 1890 62 Slovenes, 201 Italians, 1900 17 Slovenes, 309 Italians 2 Croats, 1910 66 Slovenes 371 Italians). Coast of Savudrija is located in Piran Bay and when Savudrija belonged to Croatia, Croats started with jurisdiction in land but in whole Piran Bay had jurisdiction Slovenia. After independance Croatia required half of Piran Bay which means that Slovenia would lose teritorial junction to High sea which can be disaster for  Koper port and slovenian economy.

Problem with this agreement is that Croatia in fact cant loss anything  (they have more than 2500times more sea than Slovenia) but Slovenia in other hand can lose 1/3 of sea and teritorial junction with High sea.  Because of that Slovenia want that arbitrators use not just International law but also principle "Ex aequo et bono" which means that they try to find fair solution and account also history and other relavant circumstances (After WWII Croatia as part of Yugoslavia got more than 90% of Istria and Rijeka but Trieste, Gorizia, Venetia Slovenia etc. belonged to Italy and so cca. 140.000 Slovenes stayed in Italy, how Savudrija came to Croatia, Slovenia has a long tradition of fishermens etc...) And principle Ex aequo et bono is not part of this agreemnt.

Other disputes in land are mostly because teritory on Slovenian sides of rivers is in Croatian register and in Croatian side is in Slovenian except in Piran where Croatian built "temporarily border for  the tourist season in 1994 but is still there. So 4 villages from Slovenian register came under croatian jurisdiction...
