Deskoska: We are starting new talks on amendments to the Electoral Code

The Ministry of Justice will renew the discussions with the working groups for amending the Electoral Code, announced Minister of Justice, Renata Deskoska, at the Elections Reforms Conference: “Macedonian Elections Perspectives”.

“A certain draft was prepared, in which we implemented the recommendations of the OSCE/ODIHR, but we did not have the replies of the political parties. Regardless of that, we will start new discussions. The new text of the Code will also include current issues such as open lists and a new electoral model, whereas the Ministry of Justice will be the mediator of the process”, said Deskoska.

She emphasized that the Ministry of Justice will not support a single reform for which there will be no consensus from the political parties.
