Report launch: Corruption risks in Croatian, Balkan election financing

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



BerlinThe transparency of political party financing in the Balkans will be assessed in a new report to be published by anti-corruption organisation Transparency International at 09.00am Berlin time on 25 June 2013.

‘Buying Influence: Money and Elections in the Balkans’ will evaluate the strength of political party financing laws in Albania, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia (FYR) and Serbia. The report will also highlight problems with how these laws are put into practice and make recommendations to clean up election financing in the region.

Croatia will become the 28th member state of the European Union on 1 July 2013. A 2012 Transparency International report warned that financing of political parties is a problem across the EU.

The full report will be available at www.transparency.org on 25 June 2013.

Embargo copies of the report, press release and infographics are available on request.
