Parliament Adopts Electoral Code Changes

On Monday, Parliament, with 75 votes in favour, adopted Electoral Code changes according to which, if multiple types of elections are held simultaneously, a party or coalition will occupy the same position on the ballot in all types of election processes.

The changes, proposed by MPs Nikola Micevski (VMRO-DPMNE), Martin Kostovski (SDSM), and Arber Ademi (DUI), will be in force for the upcoming elections too.

That means that the position presidential candidates have on the ballot can be used by the parties or coalitions that have endorsed them.
