Complete election results expected at 1pm Monday

State Electoral Commission (DIP) chairman Branko Hrvatin said late on Sunday night that DIP was likely to count all ballots from Croatia's parliamentary election by 1 pm Monday.

"DIP is counting the returns and I hope we will have a clear situation at a press conference at 1pm tomorrow," Hrvatin told a news conference at midnight. He added that votes from 44.5% of polling stations had been counted and that the elections had been held in an orderly manner.

Hrvatin noted that a 48-hour deadline for the submission of complaints against any irregularities that might have happened during the voting started at midnight Sunday.
