Baily and Orav: April 6 was a missed opportunity for the preperation of credible elections


Macedonian political leaders have a responsibility to their citizens to return the country to Euro-Atlantic path through the implementation of political agreements and priority reforms, said US Ambassador Jess Baily and EU Ambassador Aivo Orav.

“The EU and U.S. have supported all parties and stakeholders in their work to create the conditions for credible elections. This includes cleaning the voters’ list, preventing any form of intimidation or pressuring of voters, and ensuring fair media coverage. Some progress has been made on these fronts, but considerable work remains. It is a responsibility not only of the state institutions to prepare credible elections, but also of the political parties. April 6 was a missed opportunity”, said the joint statement.

The ambassadors say that the EU and the USA, together with their international partners, will continue to support democratic development, which includes elections.

“We commend the work of the State Election Commission, as well as the efforts of civil society, in advancing that goal. We will follow developments closely and continue to share our views”, reads the statement.
