meta_maliSKOPJE – OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier arrived in Skopje Wednesday night due to the new crisis in awarding the mandate to form a new government, Meta reports.

During the day Zannier will meet with Macedonian Foreign Minister, Nikola Poposki, President Gjorge Ivanov, the leaders of parliamentary political parties and representatives of civil society organizations.

Last week, after Ivanov decided not to award the mandate, Zannier via “Twitter” expressed his concern and announced his visit to Macedonia.

“I am concerned regarding the developments in Skopje. The rule of law must prevail. Next week I will visit Skopje and will meet with government officials, leaders of political parties and representatives of civil society. The results of the December elections are a solid basis for forming a government that will serve the interests of all citizens”, Zannier wrote.
