Greek liaisons office in Skopje might be for sale; Number of fictive voters keeps increasing

Skopje

DNEVNIK
The building of the Greek liaisons office in Skopje is among the 30 buildings worldwide that Greece intends to sell in order to pour in additional finds in to its struggling budget, the daily says citing unconfirmed reports by the Greek newspaper Ethnos that published an alleged Greek government document containing the list. Among others, the Greek embassies in neighboring Bulgaria and Albania are also on the published list for sale.

UTRINSKI VESNIK
Despite many attempts before each election cycle, Macedonia keeps failing to erase the so called fictive voters from the voter’s lists that could be used for large manipulations and for rigging the elections the daily says. The estimates show that there are some 200.000 such nonexistent voters on the list which equals to some 10 percent of all the registered voters and is even more than during last year’s elections.

Balkan Insight has not verified the reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
