Presidential elections in Macedonia will be held at the end of April
The second term of the president of Macedonia, Djordje Ivanov, expires on May 12th
- It is being considered that the first round of presidential elections will be held on April 21 and the second on May 5, which would fulfill the legal framework - said Xhaferi at a press conference.
According to him, it was originally planned that the first round of elections for the president of Macedonia will be held on April 14 and the second on April 28, but the date is moved because Easter is on April 28th.
The second term of the president of Macedonia, Djordje Ivanov, expires on May 12, which, he added, is the last date until his successor should be inaugurated.
Xhaferi said that the snap parliamentary elections shouldn't be signed with the presidential elections due to the obligations in the NATO adn EU integration, but he added that the decision will be made by political parties, and not the president of the parliament.
- I think this is a wrong idea, but this is the decision of the political parties and if they decide to do so (to sign for parliamentary elections) that is their right - said the president of Sobranie Talat Xhaferi.
The greatest opposition party VMRO DPMNE asked for the snap parliamentary elections, shortly when the ruling majority adopted constitutional changes to change the name of the state to Northern Macedonia, and a senior official of the party said that he is also considering the boycott of the presidential elections if they are not held with them at the same time parliamentary elections.
