At Friday’s press conference regarding the election process he announced, SDSM leader Zoran Zaev, acknowledged that the OSCE would not send a full monitoring team.

OSCE has said that they will send a team appropriate to the coronavirus crisis. We should not expect a full team, but a teams that will complete its competencies, so that the monitoring process can be completed, Zaev said.

Zaev stressed that this is what he expected and wanted, as well as the fact that the OSCE announced that they would need a quick period to position themselves in the country.

I personally expect everyone to be calm in the election process, the OSCE to help us from neighboring countries as well, we have a country that has 450 people from the OSCE, especially ambassadors, services in the embassies themselves are observers, helpers and I believe they will do it, says Zaev.
