Croatian President, Ivo Josipovic, is pushing for the upcoming elections to be held on Monday or Tuesday, December 5 or 6, 2011, which would mean the declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in Croatia on the chosen date.
The Croatian Prime Minister, Jadranka Kosor, has responded to the aforementioned suggestion by pointing out that Article 5 of the law on the election of members of parliament clearly says that elections in Croatia have to be held on a non-working day or a one-off public holiday and added that this would be possible "only if the president decrees that one of the dates he mentioned is a non-working day but that too is within parliament's remit".
