I am ready to postpone the population census, said Prime Minister Zoran Zaev at Wednesday’s press conference. Commenting on President Stevo Pendarovski’s proposal to delay the census to May or June, Zaev said all options are worth considering.
“I also saw the proposal of President Pendarovski to postpone the census for a month. Alright, I’m always ready, everything is worth considering. We know a census can’t be conducted in summer. Election campaign is due in September, and local elections in October. Even if we consider a delay by a month or so, so that we complete the operation by mid-June, I see that the opposition has already refused, so I call on everyone to be responsible and conduct the census,” said Zaev.
