According to all previous reports of Freedom House, Macedonia is partially free democracy. Serbia was unfree democracy until the fall of Slobodan Milosevic. In the last decade in our Balkan surroundings despite Macedonia partly free democratic countries are Albania, Bosnia, and Kosovo. This fact shows us in what kind of democracy we live. According to the current electoral system in Macedonia, the political competition implies an inferior position of the Roma political bloc. The Roma community is not able to compete among their ranks; they are forced to make a coalition with the larger political parties if they want to achieve a particular political or institutional position in the state. So it appears that the choice of Roma political representatives is dictated by the quantity (numbers), and not by quality.
