The Government and the SSO are unable to organize a census, the solution is an electronic census, stated VMRO-DPMNE in a press release on Thursday.
“It is shameful and irresponsible not to know who will be enumerators one week before the official start of the census. The government is conducting the procedure for organizing the census completely unprofessionally. At first they said that everything was over, and now they complain that there are no enumerators. Why and when do they lie? Additionally, the whole situation is aggravated by four waves of COVID-19, which is also so big due to the incompetence of the government. VMRO-DPMNE proposes to resolve the situation with an electronic census, without physical visits of citizens to their homes, thus preventing the spread of the coronavirus, and we can determine exactly how many people there are in Macedonia so that there is no manipulation as the government now wants to do. So, the solution is an electronic census to protect the health of citizens and there is no manipulation in this type of census,” says the opposition party.
