The Macedonian local election, 2013 are the sixth held-on-schedule local elections for the election of local mayors of the municipalities of the Republic of Macedonia and members of municipality councils. On the elections in most municipalities candidates had the two major rival parties: the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization - Democratic Party for Macedonian National Unity (VMRO-DPMNE) and the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM), also present on the elections was the Democratic Union for Integration (DUI), Democratic Party of Albanians (DPA), Union of Roma Forces etc. There were two large coalitions on the elections: the Coalition for a Better Macedonia led by VMRO-DPMNE and the Union for the Future led by SDSM. There was also coalition made between the two major rival parties in Kičevo and Struga municipalities against the ethnic Albanian candidates Fatmir Dehari and Ramiz Merko of DUI.[1] There are two rounds in the elections of which the first was held on March 24, 2013. The first round of elections were declared the most peaceful elections in the history of independent Macedonia without any serious incidents. The elections were however not untainted, as the situation in the Centar Municipality was labeled as undemocratic by the Macedonian opposition with several voters being labeled as questionable for having only recently received their national ID cards and not being actual inhabitants of this respective municipality. The elections in this municipality lasted for three turns and were monitored by the foreign embassies. [2][3] [4]
