    1)Do you think it's possible to use "announce" in the following pattern: "he announced to reporters that..."?
    You would use that only if the announcement were taking place in a public press conference.

    2)Do you think it's natural to use "in answer to" in the context: "authorities have taken these measures in answer to the recent acts of terrorism"?
    Yes, it's fine.

    3)Is it possible to say "to decare a decision" or is it "to announce a decision"?
    "announce" is usually better.

    4)Is it natural to use "recognize" in the context "to recognize defeat"?
    I'd need to see a complete sentence to be sure.

    5)Is it natural to combine "general" and "national" in one word-group: "general national (nationwide) elections"?
    Yes, it's fine; it's basically stating that the election is not a special election for only one or two purposes, but is an election for a variety of offices, for example, that come up for reelection regularly.

    6)Which article would you use in the context: "he announced a/the(?) decision not to participate in the elections"?
    If there's only one decision to be made, then either one will work.
