Citizens to vote with a fingerprint for the first time ever


There will be no changes to the Electoral Code ahead of the October 17 local elections, although parties have had lengthy discussions on them, said Prime Minister and SDSM leader Zoran Zaev on Sunday.

“The Parliament Speaker informed me that the Electoral Code will stay as it is following the latest changes with the fingerprint voting and the OSCE/ODIHR recommendations, in order to avoid remarks that things are done at the last minute, resulting in blockades to the law. Implementation of the OSCE/ODIHR recommendations has increased transparency and responsibility, whereas the fingerprint voting will guarantee fair and democratic elections,” PM Zaev told reporters.

The remaining changes recommended by OSCE, the opposition parties and the media would be incorporated in the Electoral Code after the local elections.
