27 July 21 - The coincidence of the census with the election campaign will not change anything, and it is possible that the census will end earlier, said Prime Minister Zoran Zaev. Local elections, however, will be held on October 17. The Prime Minister Zoran Zaev cut about the possible combinatorics and informed that there will be no changes to the date set in the Electoral Code, regarding the holding of the autumn elections. Despite the dilemmas of matching the census with the local election campaign, it has been determined that the date of the elections remains October 17. According to the Prime Minister, the census may end earlier than the deadline. "There were dilemmas due to the three days matching the census with the campaign, but in the end it was decided that the three days do not change anything, the census is an activity that ends during the day, the campaigns are conducted in the evening. The census has always been conducted for 20 days, this time 30 days are determined, and it can really be completed earlier. "There is enough time, there is no need for any changes in the election date," said Zaev.

Regarding the threshold for submitting independent lists, it has been agreed that it will be two percent of the total number of voters. "If the municipality has 10 thousand voters, it needs 200 signatures to submit an independent list. "If there are 50,000 voters, an independent list should be submitted with a thousand signatures," said Zaev. The negotiations were conducted for more than a month with the participation of all parliamentary political parties, agreeing on the date of the elections, the modalities for open or closed lists, as well as all OSCE / ODIHR recommendations, including the recommendation to unify the threshold of necessary signatures for submitting the lists. Regarding the possibility of a coalition with BESA, Zaev says that they will have some kind of coalition with all coalition partners due to the specifics of the local elections, but in the second round. SDSM previously demanded the consent of the parties to schedule the elections for October 31, in order to avoid their overlap with the autumn census. The opposition did not accept such a proposal and demanded that the elections be held on October 17, as required by the Constitution. The Alliance for Albanians also said it was in favor of the October 17th elections.
