Borrell and Várhelyi say that the election process remains insufficiently regulated


According to the preliminary findings and conclusions by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the second round of the presidential elections and parliamentary elections in North Macedonia took place in a peaceful and democratic atmosphere. The elections were competitive and fundamental freedoms were respected, although the process remains insufficiently regulated, say EU High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell and European Commissioner for Neighborhood and Enlargement Olivér Várhelyi in a joint statement on Friday.
“The EU congratulates President Siljanovska-Davkova on her election and looks forward to working with the new president, North Macedonia’s first woman Head of State. We encourage relevant political actors to work to form a parliament and a stable government. Both institutions need to work together to advance North Macedonia’s EU path including by implementing key reforms particularly in the area of the rule of law and the fight against corruption, in the interests of all its citizens,” reads the statement.
