Opposition SDSM decided to return the 34 legislative seats and to act as a non-parliamentary political party in the future. The party’s new concept and course of action will be discussed in greater detail at the party congress scheduled for 11 May.

In the press release that SDSM issued Thursday, it is said that SDSM’s central board unanimously accepted the executive board’s decision not to recognize the election results and not to accept the legislative seats won in Sunday’s elections.

The central board firmly believes that Macedonian citizens were prevented from expressing their will freely as a result of the system pressure the government exerted on them and because of the authorities’ failure to separate the state from the party.
