State Electoral Commission (SEC) President Oliver Derkovski said that no campaign can be seen as crystal clear, but that the presidential election campaign was conducted in a “relatively peaceful atmosphere”. Derkovski was joined by the heads of the three presidential campaigns, who called for a peaceful election day on April 21st.

It would be good for us to show democratic maturity, regardless who is in power and who is in the opposition, Derkovski said.

Igor Janusev, campaign manager for VMRO-DPMNE candidate Gordana Siljanovska – Davkova, said that the responsibility for holding fair and democratic elections rests on the Government.
