Parliamentary elections were held in the Socialist Republic of Macedonia on 11 November 1990, with a second round on 25 November.[1] They were the first competitive elections in the country's history.[2] VMRO-DPMNE emerged as the largest party, winning 38 of the 120 seats.[3]

Electoral system[edit]

The 120 members of the Assembly were elected in 120 single-member constituencies. If no candidate received over 50% in the first round, a second round was held and contested by every candidate who received over 7% of the vote in the first round.[2] In the second round a majority was not required, and the candidate who received the most votes won the seat.[2]
