Early parliamentary election deadlines begin in Croatia

The deadlines for the early parliamentary election to be held on September 11 went into force on Sunday, after President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic's decision calling the election was published in the Official Gazette on Saturday.

Parties, independent slates and candidates can submit slates to the State Election Commission by midnight on August 13, after which the Commission has 48 hours to check them and publish the valid ones. Campaigning begins after the slates are published and ends on September 10, followed by a blackout period.

Voting in diplomatic and consular offices will take place on September 10 and 11.

This will be the ninth parliamentary election since Croatia achieved independence. Voters will elect 151 members of parliament.
