Skopje, 12 October 2017 (MIA) - The 15 October local election are an opportunity for you, the citizens to present your views about the direction your municipalities should take in the future, Head of the EU Delegation to Macedonia Samuel Zabogar said Thursday in his Twitter message.
'We call on political leaders and party members to conduct the election process without intimidation and violence. We remind of the significance of making clear distinction between the state and party activities before, during and after the elections. We count on the state institutions - the police, the State Election Commission, civic society - to do their job for conducting democratic, free and fair elections,' Zbogar said.
Finally, each vote counts, he said. 'We call on citizens to exercise their democratic right to vote and thus shape the future of their municipalities.' lk/18:52
