Article 28

A ballot paper shall contain:

  1. the candidate's first and family name;

  2. the full and abbreviated name of the political party or parties or the party coalition which has or have proposed the candidate. If a candidate has been proposed by Croatian citizens, his/her first and family name shall be followed by the designation “independent candidate”.

Candidates shall be listed on the ballot papers in the order in which they are cited on the list of candidates. An ordinal number shall be placed before the first and family name of every candidate.

At a new election for the President of the Republic of Croatia, candidates shall be entered on the ballot papers so that first place is taken by the candidate who obtained more votes at the first vote.
