Macedonian vote set to be postponed: opposition leader

Macedonian opposition leader Zoran Zaev adresses to media in front of the Macedonian Government building in Skopje on May 27,2015The opposition leader in crisis-hit Macedonia said Friday he was confident that a general election scheduled for early June would not go ahead, and the Balkan country’s dissolved parliament was likely to reconvene soon. In an interview with AFP, Zoran Zaev said the snap poll scheduled for June 5 should be postponed until conditions for a free and fair vote have been met, possibly in the autumn. Parliament was dissolved last month to make way for the election as part of an EU-brokered deal to end a national political crisis, but Zaev’s Social Democrats (SDSM) and two other key parties have refused to register candidates.
