2019 North Macedonian presidential election

Voters in North Macedonia head to the polls for the second round of the 2019 presidential election. Stevo Pendarovski of the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia wins over his opponent Gordana Siljanovska-Davkova.

The country changed its name to overcome objections from Greece, allowing North Macedonia to join NATO and possibly the European Union.
