SEC Presents Preliminary Official Results of First Round

On Thursday, the State Election Commission (SEC) presented the preliminary official results of the first round of the presidential election.

VMRO-DPMNE-endorsed Gordana Siljanovska Davkova, with 363,086 votes (40.08%), and SDSM-endorsed Stevo Pendarovski, with 180,500 votes (19.92%), will enter the second round.

Votes from 3,505 out of 3,508 polling stations have been processed. At three stations in Kumanovo, the vote was stopped due to technical problems.

However, since it’s about a small number of votes that would not impact the final outcome, the SEC has invalidated the vote there and the process will not be repeated.
