Although Prime Minister Zaev is 44 years old and a person must be at least 40 years old to run for president, he thinks he is still young to run.

I would be the ideal consensual candidate for president, looking at the ratings, but I’m still young to run, Prime Minister Zoran Zaev told reporters during a visit to the Neurology Clinic, as a response to the question “Will the battle for president be led by two ladies “? (Siljanovska and Sekerinska). Zaev says he likes the idea of two ladies fighting for the post, but it is up to the parties to decide.

The two largest parties SDSM and VMRO DPMNE decided to elect their candidates through a public call.

SDSM has not yet announced whether they have received nominations, as they say, the process is ongoing and the candidate will be elected on March 3 at a party congress. VMRO-DPMNE, though, received 10 nominations, with one after the deadline. And DUI might go with their own candidate in the elections.
