The opposition Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) party said on Wednesday that the government’s decision to pay Christmas bonuses for pensioners was illegal, calling it covert financing of the election campaign.

“We believe that this covert financing of the election campaign, by which the ruling coalition intends to win voters’ favour, is illegal. We are confident that pensioners, who have been suffering with the rest of the people, both those employed and unemployed, during the term of the present government, understand what happened and that this will not give them cause to put their trust in the outgoing government,” HDZ MP Davorin Mlakar told a press conference.
