Mexhiti: We will secure 80,000 votes for Pendarovski

The vice-president of DUI and Head of the Electoral Headquarters for support of presidential candidate Stevo Pendarovski, Izet Mexhiti, said in a press conference that DUI will secure around 80,000 votes for Pendarovski in the 2nd round of the 2019 presidential election. “The citizens of Albanian ethnicity usually do not vote for presidential candidates of Macedonian ethnicity in the 1st round of the election. However, on 5 May we are to make a decision whether we want to proceed moving forward towards integration of NATO and EU, or remain an isolated country, and I can assure you that around 80,000 Albanians will most certainly support this concept. Boycotting of this election may result with a new political crisis in North Macedonia, so we call all the citizens to go to the polling stations on 5 May and cast their vote and support the concept for integration in NATO and EU,” Mexhiti said.
