Over the next two days, any campaigning or publication of election result estimates, candidates' photos, statements or interviews is prohibited.

For the past two weeks, voters have had the chance to become acquainted with almost 2,700 candidates on 192 lists.

The 151 MPs in Croatian parliament are elected by secret ballot to a four-year term. In the ten constituencies in Croatia, 14 are elected per constituency, the diaspora elects three, and ethnic minorities eight. Voting will take place at 7,000 polling stations in Croatia and abroad, and will be watched by 8,700 observers.

There are 3.86 million eligible voters in Croatia.

Because of the health and safety measures in force due to the coronavirus pandemic, the July 5th parliamentary elections are expected to be one of the most challenging since Croatia gained independence.
