HDZ proposes gov't cut campaign funding by 25%

The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) is proposing that the government at its session on Thursday adopt a decision to cut by 25 percent the amount of funding for election campaigning for the early election on September 11, to which political parties and independent slates are entitled under the law, according to a statement released by the party on Wednesday.

The HDZ is proposing that the amount of funding for election campaigning be reduced from 180,000 kuna to 135,000 kuna per parliamentary seat, citing the law on the financing of political activities and election campaigning.

The HDZ recalled that a regular parliamentary election had been held on 8 November 2015 and that the parties had been duly reimbursed from the state budget for election campaigning.
