Elections were conducted in Macedonia, Yugoslavia from mid-November to mid-December 1990. As reported in the attached article from Radio Free Europe (17 May 1991, 23), the final election results in the 120 seat National Assembly were as follows:

The Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization-Democratic Party for Macedonian Unity (IMRO-DPMNU) - 37 seats

The League of Communists of Macedonia-Party for Democratic Transformation (LCM-PDT) - 31 seats

The Albanian Party for Democratic Prosperity - 25 seats

The Alliance of Reform Forces for Macedonia (ARFM) - 19 seats (six in coalition with the Socialists, the Young Democratic Progressive Party and the Romany Party)

The Socialist Party - 4 seats

The Party of Yugoslavs - 1 seat

Independents - 3 seats.

                The Radio Free Europe article (Ibid., 22-23) also states that the following individuals were elected to their positions by the National Assembly:

President of National Assembly - Stojan Andov (ARFM) 8 January 1991

State President - Kiro Gligorov (LCM-PDT) 27 January 1991

Vice-President - Ljupco Georgijevski (IMRO-DPMNU) 1 February 1991

Prime Minister - Nikola Kljusev (Independent) 20 March 1991.

Recent references to S. Andov, K. Gligorov and N. Kljusev in articles from the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) indicate that these individuals still hold their positions (FBIS-EEU-92-014 22 Jan. 1992, 44; FBIS-EEU-92-002 3 Jan. 1992, 44; FBIS-EEU-92-008 13 Jan. 1992, 58) However, L. Georgijevski resigned his post as Vice-President in December 1991 (FBIS-EEU-91-250 30 Dec. 1991, 43). There is no information currently available to the IRBDC on his successor.
