State Electoral Commission recieving lists of the candadiates

State Electoral Commission vice president Ana Lovrin said on Wednesday they received 190 slates and 17 minority candidacies for the July 5 parliamentary election.

More slates were submitted than four years ago but less candidacies for Constituency 12, where ethnic minorities elect their MPs. In 2016, 177 slates and 29 minority candidacies were submitted. A record 313 slates were submitted for the 2011 parliamentary election.

Lovrin said the Commission now had 48 hours to check the validity of the lists of candidates and publish them by constituency, after which electioneering begins. She added that the valid lists could be published on Thursday afternoon.

Voters will elect 151 MPs, 140 in ten constituencies in Croatia, three will be elected by Croats residing abroad, and eight by ethnic minorities.

On Tuesday, the last day for doing so, independent slates were submitted by MP Marin Skibola, Dino Debeljuh, Irena Francekovic and Damir Gruenbaum.

Slates were also submitted by Zeljko Kerum with his Croatian Civic Party, Milivoj Spika's Bloc Pensioners Together, the Kvarner Union, the Croatian Unity Party, the coalition of the Veterans Patriotic Party of Croatia and the Croatian Veterans People's Party, the Croatian Order Party, the Croatian Future Party, the Movement for a Modern Croatia, the Hrvatski Vidik party, the Croatian Democratic Party, Free Croatia, and the Party With a First and Last Name.
