Culev: MoI Will Act Uncompromisingly Against Attempts for Electoral Fraud

Technical Interior Minister Naje Culev held on Tuesday a press conference in relation to the several cases of electoral manipulations on social networks. The police intervened against several citizens on Monday evening, after they called upon supporters of VMRO-DPMNE on social networks to scratch out on the ballot the word “North” from the name of the country, which would make the ballot invalid. “I would like to point out that the Interior Ministry will act in an uncompromising, consistent and responsible manner during the elections, without tolerating any attempts to prevent the people’s right to freely express their will. Police officers are the pillar of these elections and I urge them to do their job and not succumb to political and criminal pressure and influence. MoI is committed to the legality of the electoral process but also protection of the people’s health,” Culev said.
