PACE to observe presidential election in North Macedonia

Strasbourg, 18 April 2024 (MIA) - A 14-member delegation of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), led by Alfred Heer (Switzerland, ALDE), will observe the conduct of the presidential election in North Macedonia on 24 April.

The delegation will observe the election alongside observers from the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), PACE said in a press release on Thursday.  

PACE observers will meet candidates competing in the election, the Chairman and members of the State Election Commission, as well as representatives of civil society and the media, before observing the ballot on 24 April. 

An expert of the Venice Commission – the Council of Europe's group of independent legal experts – will provide legal support during the visit.
