Apart from funds that parties received from the budget, for financing this campaign, three times more money from private sources than for the elections in 2012 were collected, according to the Center for Democratic Transition (CDT).

President of CDT, Milica Kovacevic says it is obvious that parties does not save money even for the advertisements on television and in the print media, which is almost three times more than before four years.

“CDT monitors the funding of electoral campaigns of political entities.We have conducted the monitoring of paid advertising on commercial television and in the print media in cooperation with Archimedes media company, ” Kovacevic said.
