BRUSSELS – European Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, condemned today’s decision by President Gjorge Ivanov to annul the trials of politicians, noting that it is contrary to the rule of law.

“Today’s actions of President Ivanov are not in line with my understanding of the rule of law. In the light of these developments, I have serious doubts whether credible elections are still possible. Political leaders must know that the actions we have seen recently put the Euro-Atlantic future of their country at risk. Democracy means compromise and serving the citizens. I call upon all political parties to come back to the negotiating table and work on reforms”, Commissioner Hahn wrote on “Twitter”.
