Abstract

The election cycles that have been held so far in the Republic of Macedonia, since the independence until today, have been conducted in several ways. Some of them were conducted as election of the people's representatives in the country through one constituency, then there was a division of the country into a large number of constituencies and the current Electoral Code has divided the territory of the country into six constituencies. The changes that were made by replacing the majority with a proportional model was in order to enable equal representation of MPs from all parts of the country and the same applies to local councils where representatives from all parts of the municipality should participate. An important aspect is the percentage of women as part of the electoral lists but also members of minority communities. In some countries in Europe (Denmark, BiH) the principle of open electoral lists works, which lately has been increasingly promoted as an idea in Republic of N.Macedonia. This paper will try to present the advantages and disadvantages of both models (open and closed electoral lists) from the aspect of the Macedonian democratic political scene.
