Macedonia's opposition party chose late Monday a law professor as its candidate to run in the March 22 presidential elections.

Ljubomir Frckoski, who once served as the country's interior and foreign minister, was voted unanimously by 700 delegates at the Social Democrats' convention as their candidate to stand in the elections.

"We support a candidate who has the ability to strengthen the country's security, stability, inter-ethnic relations and democracy, as well as to promote Macedonia abroad," acting party leader Zoran Zaev said.

Earlier in the day, the country's ruling party VMRO-DPMNE said it had picked Gjorgje Ivanov, a 48-year-old law professor, as its candidate to run in the upcoming elections.

Macedonia's president is elected for a five-year term, and the same person can be elected twice in a row. Candidates must be citizens of Macedonia and above 40 years old.
