“CIVIL” organization has expressed its concern that people are being pressured and intimidated in order not to be able to cast their ballot freely on Sunday’s elections.

“During the period from 5 to 8 December, 600 cases have been registered of people being intimidated. All of these cases will be submitted to the State Election Commission”, said Dzabir Deralla from “CIVIL” organization.

According to him, in the recent days there has been a growing number of people who are asked to vote a certain party, otherwise they could lose their job or suffer other repercussions.

This organization also declared that many citizens have complained that they have not found their names on the voters’ lists. Meanwhile, “CIVIL” organization will monitor the 11 December elections with tens of observers. /balkaneu.com/
