The Prime Minister of Northern Macedonia, Zoran Zaev, stated today that the census in Northern Macedonia will be carried out normally, as planned, from September 5th to 30th, adding that there is no reason for a new postponement.
The 19-year-old census would take place from April 1st to April 21st, but was postponed to September due to the coronavirus pandemic, following a meeting between Zoran Zaev and VMRO-DPMNE leader. Hristijan Mickoski on March 29th.
At the same meeting it was decided to postpone the local elections to the twelfth second week of October from those first scheduled.
The first census in the country was conducted in 1948. Since then, eight censuses have been made, with the last one taking place in 2002. In 2011, the census attempt was banned by the then government.ibna
