The Most civic association informed at its first press conference today that minor irregularities had been registered at a few polling stations. They informed that a few individuals obstructed the voting at two polling stations in Kondovo and that some individuals were caught lobbying and influencing voters at two polling stations in Kicevo. Proxy voting was registered in Oslomej.

Most also informed that ballot papers were ripped in the municipality of Cento. A1 Television reported that some citizens in the municipality of Centar in Skopje do not know where to vote because the old polling station was moved from the Internal Revenue Service. The citizens were not informed about this and they do not know where to vote. The media report that EU Ambassador Erwan Fouere, US Ambassador Gillian Milovanovic, and UK Ambassador Robert Chatterton-Dickson are monitoring the voting at polling stations in Tetovo, Kondovo, and Lipkovo.
