Strumica, 15 July 2020 (MIA) – SDSM leader and head of “We Can” coalition MP candidate list in the fourth election district, Zoran Zaev, cast his vote in Strumica on Wednesday.
“These elections are different than previous ones, but equally important. Election results will determine what life will be like in the next four years. I believe our election campaign convinced citizens that the SDSM-led ‘We Can’ coalition expects their support,” Zaev said.
According to him, state institutions demonstrated capacity to organize the election process in unusual circumstances, in line with health protocols, to allow citizens to cast their ballots so the country can continue to move forward.
“Citizens will decide who will protect public health, open and close EU negotiating chapters and more importantly, who will tend to economic growth and North Macedonia’s development,” the SDSM leader noted.
In answer to a reporter’s question whether the pandemic will impact voter turnout, Zaev said he expects a small decrease.
“We’ve made a serious contribution to ensuring the safety of the voting process. I believe this morning’s excellent turnout will prevail, to ensure the credibility of Parliament and the next government. I’m convinced citizens feel a personal responsibility to choose the direction the country will continue to move in. We’re on the right path and we’ll stick to it,” he told reporters in Strumica.
