How to register to vote outside of your place of residence

If you will be outside of your place of residence (in Zagreb) on election day, contact by phone or email the Office for General Administration by Wednesday October 28 on any working day during the working hours of the office, or on Saturday October 24 anytime from 8:00-14:00. Nadležni uredi u Republici Hrvatskoj će na dan 28. listopada 2015. godine zaprimati zahtjeve do 16.00 sati. The appropriate offices in the Republic of Croatia will be accepting applications on October 28 until 16:00.


The Constitution and the electoral laws as toys in the hands of Constitutional Court judges

The Constitutional Court reacts late yet again, and changes the rules of the electoral game one minute before it begins, right before the dissolution of the Parliament, when there is nothing to be done to fix the flaws of the legal framework. The decision is politically coloured in favour of the political elite and against legal certainty and the level of citizens’ trust in political institutions and actors, and serves to confuse the public, voters, candidates, media, as well as the institutions entrusted with the execution of the elections.  The impression left is that the decision was made with the upcoming re-election of the Constitutional Court judges in mind.


GONG observes the election proces for Croatian Parliamentary Elections 2011.

The election of representatives to the Croatian Parliament in the Republic of Croatia took place on December 4, 2011. Croatian citizens were able to vote in country and abroad (elections abroad took place on December 3 and 4). GONG started observing the election process a few months before the Election Day, by monitoring the work of institutions responsible for administering the election, i.e. State Election Commission (SEC), Ministry of Public Administration (MPA) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration (MFAEI).


(Ir)responsibility of the Croatian Parliament, Government and the Constitutional Court: Elections unconstitutional and illegal?

Towards the parliamentary elections in 2011, again we point out the disproportion of the number of voters per each constituency that is not within the legal limits. We remind that the Law on Election of Representatives to the Croatian Parliament predicts that the difference between the number of voters in individual constituencies does not exceed + / - 5%. At the parliamentary elections in 2007 this difference in some constituencies was higher, so the same is expected in the upcoming elections.
