Generally, the choice of an electoral system should provide the realization of democratic standards regarding selected institutions, time frequency in the development of elections and organization of election units. Regarding election systems, Republic of Albania and Republic of Macedonia, have many things in common, but there are some specifications that make their electoral systems unique and different from each other. With the usage of the descriptive, statistical and historical methods, this project aims to offer the readers detailed information on electoral systems of the Republic of Macedonia and Republic of Albania.
