Two-day electioneering moratorium to start at midnight

A two-day moratorium on electioneering starts in Croatia as of midnight on Friday, during which it will be forbidden to publish statements, interviews and photographs of candidates and estimates of the election outcome.

The campaigning moratorium will be in effect until the closure of polling stations at 7pm on Sunday. State Electoral Commission chairman Branko Hrvatin on Friday called on the political parties and candidates to observe the ban.

Croatians are choosing a new 151-seat parliament on Sunday. Voting will also take place in 48 countries across the world, where polling stations will be open on Saturday and Sunday.
