State Election Commission in FYR Macedonia has decided not to deal with election irregularities which have been published as part of the wiretapped conversations between state officials, materials that have been published by the Macedonian opposition.

Head of SEC, Nikola Rilkovski declared that the majority of members have decided that they do not have the necessary powers to discuss electoral irregularities that have been put forward by the opposition.

“As chairman of SEC, I can put the issue of the electoral irregularities in the order of the day, but a part of the members believe that the examination of the opposition’s material is not within the power of SEC”, said Rilkovski.

Leader of Macedonian opposition, Zoran Zaev has also published materials for electoral fraud. A part of the irregularities have been sent to the Public Prosecution. /ibna/
