The population census, more precisely the diaspora, continues. But, from the day when Zaev and Mickoski decided to postpone the registration until September, the diaspora somehow stopped and lost that momentum as it was at the beginning, registering from 7000 – 10000 people per day. The daily record has even reached 23,170 registered, on March 21, informs Zhurnal..
But recently, more precisely since the beginning of April, the diaspora has somehow lost the will to register. Even the organization of the census is not being done as in the beginning, and so the number of self-registered from the diaspora is stagnating. Until today (April 14), the number of registered is 185951 people.
But what worries is that the number of 185 thousand is not moving now for 3 days. On Monday, there were 185,591 registered, on Tuesday 185,790 registered, while today 185,951 registered. On Monday, the lowest number of registrants was recorded, with only 61 people registered.
According to accounts, in the last three days only 360 people have been registered, a figure that is not satisfactory especially for the Albanian population.
The State Statistical Office calls on the diaspora to continue the census and not to stop because the census continues and has not been canceled.
Politicians and all those who influence the public and the diaspora should continue with their calls for registration, because even in early March, calls from all sides excited the diaspora to register.
Otherwise, the registration of the diaspora lasts until September 21, the days when the registration ends completely. Regarding the population in Macedonia, the census will be conducted from September 1 to September 21.//Zhurnal.mk
