Macedonian opposition cries election foul, will not accept results
By Kole Casule SKOPJE (Reuters) - Macedonia's opposition will not recognize the results of Sunday's parliamentary and presidential elections, the leader of the main opposition party said after the vote, widely expected to hand the ruling conservatives a third term. "A few minutes after the polls closed, I'm here to say that SDSM and our opposition coalition will not recognize the election process, neither the presidential nor the parliamentary," Zoran Zaev, leader of the center-left SDSM, told reporters. He accused Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and his conservative VMRO-DPMNE party of "abusing the entire state system", saying there were "threats and blackmails and massive buying of voters" and demanded a new election. "These have been the most peaceful elections so far," said Antonio Milosovski, a senior VMRO-DPMNE official.
