SDSM presented its list of candidates in all six constituencies in the country at its last Congress at the Alexander Palace Hotel.
In the EU 2 where Oliver Spasovski is the holder and which is also interesting for the Roma, in the position No. 6 is Latafik Dzikovska, a member of the SDSM EB and a long time activist from the NGO sector, and in the position No. 11 is Asan Herat from F. Orizari. In EU 5 the PCER leader and MP in the previous mandate is Samka Ibraimovski in position 10.
The list of VMRO-DPMNE and the coalition has not been presented yet, which is expected to include Roma candidates, but it is still uncertain whether it will be in any position. According to unconfirmed information so far the only Roma who may be slightly higher position is the president of VMRO-DPMNE branch of the municipality of Orizari in EU 2. According to some expectations he could be on that list from 7th to 10th place. That's Erdjan Demir
And the question now is, how realistic is it to expect to have Roma representatives in the future legislature?
It is obvious that in the SDSM mathematics Amdi Bajram, Fata Osmanovska, Ghege Demirovski and others were not interested, and apparently many Roma names will be hung from the VMRO DPMNE block as well.
The appetites were great, but the fact is that in this election the Roma will be on a "diet",
And that means a huge disappointment for the Roma electorate.
