Final day for submission of candidate lists for local elections

The deadline for submission of candidate lists for the 2017 local elections expires on Thursday at midnight.

The municipal election commissions (MEC) determine within 48 hours if the candidate list complies with the Electoral Code provisions. List submitters have another 48 hours to remove the irregularities. If they fail to do this, the lists will be rejected.

The MECs release the lists of candidates for council members and mayor by September 21, while the Voters’ List is closed on September 24.

The election campaign begins on September 25 and ends on October 13. The sixth local elections are scheduled on October 15, administered in 3,480 polling stations within 80 municipalities and the City of Skopje.
