Georgia, Korea and Kosovo interested in observing Croatia's election

In addition to local observers, foreign observers from Georgia, Korea and Kosovo have expressed their interest in observing Croatia's September snap election, the State Electoral Commission (DIP) reported on Tuesday.

Local observers interested in the snap election include GONG, the In the Name of the Family NGO and the Roma National Council.

Elections can be observed by political parties, a voter on behalf of an independent slate, and local and foreign NGOs.

At the parliamentary election in November 2015, there were almost 13,500 observers. About half of them, or 8,600, were observers on behalf of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ).
