[ELECTIONS 2003] Military Scandal?

According to defence minister Željka Antunović (Zeljka Antunovic), some 12 servicemen of Croatian armed forces are "active in electoral process". In Croatia active military personnel is banned from taking part in politics. Voting is their inalienable right, membership in certain political parties is something than can hide and making political statements is something in the eye of the beholder, running for office is something so blatant that even minister like Antunović is supposed to notice.

Antunović is "collecting data from State Electoral Commission" and announcing "eventual disciplinary proceedings that could end with dishonourable discharge".

I'm guessing, but servicemen in question are most likely to belong to minor right-wing parties or are supporting independent candidates of right-wing alignement.
