The State Election Commission (SEC) of North Macedonia on Wednesday approved the list of over 1.8 million eligible voters who can cast a ballot in the country’s early parliamentary elections set for July 15, the Media Information Agency (MIA) reported.
According to the SEC, a total of 1,814,263 people are eligible to vote. The list includes 1,657 registered voters who are currently serving a prison sentence, MIA reported.
The list also includes people who will turn 18 on election day, as well as nationals of North Macedonia who will arrive in the country that same day.
The early parliamentary elections in North Macedonia were initially scheduled to be held on April 12, but the date was moved to July 15 because of the coronavirus crisis and the ensuing state of emergency.
The election campaign was launched on June 24 and will end at midnight on July 12, according to the SEC’s guidelines.
COVID-19 patients and people in isolation and self-isolation will vote on July 13, while the sick and the elderly will cast their ballots on July 14, the SEC said.
