State Election Commission was included in the monthly video-analysis by Dr. Sasho Ordanoski. “The State Election Commission has no legitimacy” – says Ordanoski.

The way the State Election Commission has been reestablished now, is an attempt to establish political balance within the Commission, in order to produce some kind of legitimacy that would be acceptible for all parties.
Soon, it turned out to be impossible, because there are basic misunderstandings and those misunderstandings, ultimately, arise from the fact that the institutions that are feeding the SEC with data are institutions whose credibility has been lost. This caused disagreements within the Commission, and even the expert composition - for which we thought was comprised of experts - started acting as politicants. All the data, all procedures, everything has been brought under question.
That’s the SEC. It seems to me now that the SEC no longer has legitimacy and that it will be necessary for more robust involvement of foreign experts in the Commission and to secure the data, so that it functions according to some kind of standards that they will guarantee. Only then we can say that the SEC will produce results, primarily concerning the Voters Register, and then concerning the elections that should be acceptable to all parties.
