Opposition to withdraw its members in the election commission; Macedonia expands contaminated milk inspections
The opposition Social Democrats mulls problematizing the voting at the March local elections by withdrawing its members in the Election Commission and in the local electoral boards, the daily says. The ruling party says it has a backup plan for normal functioning of the commissions if that happens. Experts say for the daily that if the opposition withdraws the voting will not be jeopardized. Social Democrats last week refused to take part in the local elections after the government rejected their demand to postpone the voting or set parallel general elections.
