In the local elections, 22.4 percent of the citizens would vote for VMRO-DPMNE, and 21.6 percent for SDSM, for DUI and the Alliance for Albanians would vote 8 and 6.2 percent, respectively, and 5.2 percent for Levica , shows MCIC survey conducted by the M-Prospect agency over telephone, in the period from 17 to 24 March 2021, on a national representative sample of 1,003 respondents.
The results also showed that a total of one third of the citizens or 34 percent is uncertain who they will vote for in the seventh local elections in Macedonia in the fall. Of those, 15.2 percent said they would not go to the polls, and 15.9 percent said they did not know or refused to answer. The youngest are the most numerous among those for whom it is uncertain who they will vote for with a percentage of 37.3 percent.
If we compare the latest poll of the same agency with the last one conducted in December last year or three months earlier, it will be seen that VMRO-DPMNE managed to make a difference of about 23 thousand voters in its favor. Then SDSM led by 0.5%, now it loses by 0.8%, which if applied to the turnout of one million voters will reach the number of 23 thousand people who in 3 months changed their views and from former supporters of the government now support the largest party in the opposition.
