Skopje, 14 July 2020 (MIA) – The Ministry of Interior (MoI) will act in an uncompromising, consistent and responsible manner during the elections, without tolerating any attempts to prevent the people’s right to freely express their will, said Minister of Interior Nakje Chulev on Tuesday.
Any unlawful action will be sanctioned, with penalties for crimes against elections reaching up to 10 years in prison.
“Police officers are the pillar of these elections and I urge them to do their job and not succumb to political and criminal pressure and influence,” said Minister Chulev.
According to him, the MoI is fully prepared to cope with all pressures, for the purpose of a peaceful and continual electoral process.
“The police is committed to the legality of the electoral process but also protection of the people’s health,” added Chulev.
