All those interested in running for the presidential office as candidates of governing VMRO-DPMNE in the coming elections on 13 and 27 April, will be able to submit applications to the party headquarters from 18 to 26 February. The notice and all the conditions that a person needs to meet in order to qualify for a presidential candidate will be posted on VMRO-DPMNE’s website. The presidential candidate of VMRO-DPMNE will be elected by 1,300 delegates at the party convention to take place at the Universal Hall in Skopje on 1 March.

It is still uncertain whether VMRO-DPMNE is going to verify the nomination of its presidential candidate by way of collecting 10,000 signatures, for which they will only have two days left considering the deadline is 2 March, or the nomination will be verified with 30 MPs.

Everybody is entitled to run for VMRO-DPMNE’s presidential nomination without having to secure support from a certain number of delegates or some of the party bodies.
