Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor together with the coalition partners is expected to set the parliamentary election dates sometime this week, daily 24 Sata writes.
According to some sources, 20 or 27 November are under consideration. Former Prime Minister Ivo Sanader is also expected to be extradited to Croatia after having been held in detention in Austria since December.
His former party Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) has been awaiting his arrival with uncertainty, afraid he may choose a strategy similar to that of ex-deputy Prime Minister Damir Polancec, which consists of disclosing his arguments in public. This could lead to airing of some of the parties’ potentially dirty laundry.
