Many of the VMRO-DPMNE supporters travelling to Ohrid for the first large rally of the presidential campaign are reporting that their buses are being stopped by the police in an attempt to stop them from arriving to the city in time.

The police has the right to order a mechanical check on buses, but this is being abused by the Zaev regime to reduce the attendance at the opposition rally.

Participants in the rally are also reporting about heavy police presence, seemingly meant to intimidate the opposition.

The Interior Ministry denied the reports.
