Parties Finalising MP Candidate Lists

Parties are making the final preparations for the MP candidate lists. SDSM leader Dimitar Kovacevski said on Tuesday that through the municipal organisations, there were over 1,000 nominated candidates, while around 600 had officially filed MP candidacies.

Talks are underway with coalition partners on allocation of places on the lists, he added. When it comes to VMRO-DPMNE, it’s certain that party leader Hristijan Mickoski will be an MP candidate for the first time.

According to his November announcement, he will head the list in Electoral District 1. In the ethnic Albanian bloc, the joint opposition, VLEN, said on Tuesday that it didn’t fear the potential formation of a so-called counter-front being formed consisting of DUI, Ziadin Sela’s wing within Alliance for Albanians, and the parties led by Arjanit Hoxha and Skender Rexhepi Zejd.
