The Citizens Association MOST monitors today’s voting with more than 1.000 observers. 910 observers are deployed at the polling stations, covering approximately 50% of the polling stations within each municipality where voting is conducted.
MOST observers are static ones, and they will be monitoring the voting process at the polling stations during the entire day. Additionally, there are 45 mobile teams - consisting of 2 observers - deployed as logistical support to the static observers and they will occasionally monitor the voting at the polling stations that are not covered by MOST static observers.
Additionally, 35 observers will observe the work of the municipal election commissions and the work of the State Election Commission.
According to the information received from the MOST observers and the MOST regional coordinators, all of the polling stations in which MOST has deployed observers were opened. Voting is ongoing and so far there are no information about any irregularities at the polling stations.
During the Election Day, citizens who want to report eventual irregularities or to give information regarding the election process may use the free-of-charge phone line 080 080 080 or the interactive web-platform neregularnosti.most.org.mk.
MOST will announce to the public all confirmed information from the monitoring of the Election Day at three additional press-conferences, which will be held at 01:00pm, 05:00pm and 08:00pm.
