VMRO-DPMNE, DUI accept SEC’s methodology for revision of voters’ registry

VMRO-DPMNE said Monday it is withdrawing all the amendments and remarks to the methodology on revising the voters’ registry and accepting in full the version prepared by the State Election Commission (SEC).

“SEC has legal jurisdiction, capacity and full support from the state institutions to edit the voters’ registry and to ensure that fair and democratic elections are organized. VMRO-DPMNE encourages SEC to function in accordance with the law and to make utmost efforts so as to meet the commitments, for which there is enough time, and the institutions to fulfill the obligations securing free, fair and democratic elections and creating a democratic environment,” the ruling party said in a press release.

In a separate press release, the government’s junior coalition partner DUI said it was accepting the methodology, prepared and proposed by the State Election Commission, on editing the voters’ registry.

“DUI is taking this step in an attempt all possible obstacles in the electoral process to be lifted and calls on all stakeholders to play their role in order to complete this process deemed important for the country,” reads the press release adding: “Hopefully, the parties will put state interests before party interests.”
