Violations of Election Silence: Deputy President of the SEC Accuses Party of Emailing Voters

In an interview with N1 Dnevnik, Josip Salapi, Vice President of the State Election Commission, discussed the preparations for the upcoming European Parliament elections. He spoke about violations of election silence and emphasized that financial penalties are imposed for such breaches, with fines ranging from 13,000 to 66,000 euros.

While there have been fewer violations in the European elections due to the threat of fines, Salapi suggested that there may be a need to reevaluate the necessity of such regulations in the future. He discussed the differences in practices regarding election silence in Croatia and the EU, pointing out that there are stricter penalties for European elections.

As final preparations for polling stations are underway, Salapi urged voters to fulfill their civic duty and participate in the elections. He highlighted a recent case in Samobor where polling stations had to remain open longer due to a local event and stressed the importance of ensuring equal voting opportunities for all citizens. The Commission aims to maintain uniformity in following election rules and expects to release unofficial results shortly after the last polling station closes.

In conclusion, Salapi emphasized the importance of adhering to electoral regulations and ensuring a fair and transparent electoral process. The Commission continues to monitor and address any violations that may occur during the elections.
