Law on Internal Affairs to be withdrawn, final assessment of Agreement on August 31


meta_maliSKOPJE – A new transitional government is to be formed one hundred days before the election. New amendments to the Law on Internal Affairs will be suspended, a meeting of political leaders will be organized by the end of August, while the Electoral Roll has to be fully cleansed as well as reforms to the media must be complete. This is just part of the final agreement reached by political parties, signatories to the Pržino Agreement today, after several rounds of negotiations.

“I have good news, the political parties have reached an agreement one year after the Pržino Agreement . I hope that this agreement will put the country on the path towards credible elections, which all political parties will recognise and participate in. The agreement provides for the cleansing of the electoral roll, measures for a more balanced media coverage, and a transitional government will be formed one hundred days before the election. Leaders of the political parties will meet on August 31 to assess the situation and reach a final agreement concerning the date for the forthcoming elections. The parties agreed to implement Urgent Reform Priorities for the continuation of Euro-Atlantic integration”, said US Ambassador to Macedonia Jess Baily.
