Parliament chairman signed election decree.
Presidential elections will take place in Macedonia on April 13. The parliament chairman Trajiko Veljanoski signed today the election decree. It will be the fifth presidential election since Macedonia became independent in 1991, after the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia.
Under the constitution, the current head of state Gjorgje Ivanov, who belongs to governing conservative party VMRO-DPMNE, has the right to run for another term of five years. None of Macedonia's political parties has so far indicated their candidate.
