ZAGREB, August 30, 2020 – A report provided by the State Election Commission (DIP) shows that HRK 78.5 million was spent on organising the country’s parliamentary elections on 5 July.

However, the incomplete report does not include all the costs incurred during the election process.

The previous parliamentary elections in September 2016 cost slightly over HRK 122 million.

The structure of the costs seems the same in 2020 as four years ago.

For instance, the biggest outlay was for remuneration for polling committee members, HRK 57.9 million on aggregate. Furthermore, material expenses accounted for HRK 20.6 million.

A polling committee member is paid 300 kuna for this job on the election day in Croatia. Chairpersons and deputy chairpersons are paid HRK 400, which was 50 kuna more than four years ago.

Remuneration per committee member for their work aboard is somewhat higher.

There are also outlays for compensation for experts hired for the organisation of the election process.
