Regulation of Election Campaign in the Republic of Croatia and the Problem of (Non)Coherence of The Current Normative Framework
Keywords:Election Campaign, Electoral Legislation, Normative Framework, Croatia
The author examines the normative framework for the election campaign in the Republic of Croatia, especially considering a number of regulations and the fact that there is no single electoral law. By analyzing numerous laws, other regulations and acts regulating the election campaign for parliamentary, presidential and local elections and for election of members of the European Parliament from the Republic of Croatia, the author tries to answer the question of the coherence of its normative framework. To this end, after a few general remarks about the normative framework, the author outlines a brief overview of election campaign regulation since 1990 and examines the relevant provisions. On this basis, the author concludes that the normative solutions were progressively shaped, although there is still room for their further improvement, and the initial thesis is confirmed by the fact that the normative framework for the election campaign in the Republic of Croatia is not coherent.
