Croatian President, Ivo Josipovic, has finally decided to announce the date of the upcoming elections on a regular non-working day, more specifically, Sunday, December 4, 2011.

Recall that last summer (2011-07-16), President Josipovic was pushing for the upcoming elections to be held on Monday or Tuesday, December 5 or 6, 2011, which would have meant the declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in Croatia on the chosen date, due to the fact that Article 5 of the Croatian law on the election of members of parliament says that elections in Croatia have to be held on a non-working day or a one-off public holiday.
