HDZ collects HRK 2.5M at fundraiser functions

The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) and its coalition have raised nearly 2.5 million kuna in donations during the election campaigning, while they the amount they have spent on electioneering so far is sightly below HRK 3.9 million, according to a statement released by the major Opposition party on Monday afternoon.

"Today we have released a statement on (campaign outlays) which we submitted to the State Election Commission within a deadline. We have raised 2.477 million kuna in donations, and our costs in all constituencies have been 3.88 million," HDZ official Josipa Rimac told the press.

Donations have been collected mainly at fundraising functions, and the HDZ expects more money to be collected that way until the end of the campaign, primarily at such events in Split and Zadar,  Rimac said.

The ruling Social Democratic Party (SDP) and its coalition has received a mere HRK 32,600 in donations and spent slightly more than HRK 10 million. 

Sources from the SDP have said in the meantime that they do not want "to buttonhole" other people to get donations from them. The SDP has always been transparent in those matters, SDP official Miarando Mrsic said.
