Campaigning ban in place ahead of Sunday's parliamentary election

A ban on electioneering went into force at midnight on Friday and will last until 1900 hrs Sunday when polling stations close for Croatia's early parliamentary election.

The State Electoral Commission (DIP) explains that ban refers to electioneering communications disseminated through a means such as a broadcast station, radio station, cable television system or satellite system, newspaper, magazine, periodical, billboard advertisement, or mail as well as the Internet and social networks.

The ban will be lifted upon the closure of polling stations at 1900 hrs Sunday and DIP is expected to issue preliminary incomplete results at 2000 hrs on its web site and will update the information over the course of the night.
