North Macedonia: Six parties gain representation in Parliament – SDSM 46, VMRO-DPMNE 44, DUI 15, AA-A 12, Left 2 and DPA 1

The “We Can” coalition led by SDSM will have 46 deputies in the new parliament, the coalition led by VMRO-DPMNE 44, the DUI 15, the Alliance for Albanians and Alternative (AA-A) 12, the Left 2 and the DPA 1, according to the simulation of the State Electoral Commission based on the initial unofficial results from yesterday’s snap parliamentary election with the processed results from 3,421 out of a total of 3,480 polling stations. The other nine parties and coalitions that participated in the elections did not win a parliamentary seat.

The SDSM coalition has the most votes 324,084 or 36.12%, the VMRO-DPMNE coalition 312,745 votes or 34.85%, the Albanian DUI 101,432 or 11.3%, the Alliance for Albanians and Alternative 76,425 or 8, 57%, Left 37,057 or 4.16% and DPA 13,553 or 1.52%.

The initial election results are still visible only occasionally on the website of the State Election Commission (SEC), which crashed last night because, according to the head of the commission Oliver Derkovski, it was the victim of a cyberattack from abroad. The SEC announced that today, after collecting and processing all the received data, it will announce the initial results of the elections and the distribution of parliamentary seats.

In the tenth parliamentary election, which lasted three days under the current the conditions of the coronavirus pandemic, the right to vote was exercised by about 923 thousand citizens or about 51% of the registered voters in the electoral rolls./ibna
