SKOPJE – The party leaders of SDSM and DUI, Zoran Zaev and Ali Ahmeti, held talks at SDSM’s headquarters for finding a solution for the political crisis after President Gjorge Ivanov Tuesday announced that the obstacles for giving the mandate still exist, Meta reports.
After the meeting, Ahmeti said for “Alsat-M” that he had talks with Zaev regarding the strategy with which all state institutions would be put into function.
-It is necessary that a way should be found, with the best intentions, how to make the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia functional and how to continue onward with the negotiations for building the institutions with which the state has to be led – said Ahmeti.
When asked whether they discussed to continue the constitutive session at the Parliament Ahmeti confirmed that they also discussed that strategy.
-For that to happen talks must be held with all political forces, in order for the Parliament to start working and for the parliamentary organs and commissions to be elected i.e. this state institution to be put into function – said Ahmeti.
Regarding the forming of the government, Ahmeti said that has to happen after the president of the Parliament is elected and who will soon after inform the president of the state that he has a parliamentary majority and a program on basis of which he has to grant a mandate to Zaev.
– The most important issue is the constitution of the Parliament. All efforts are directed towards putting it into action, the parliamentary organs to be elected, an official request from the Parliament to be made, from the president of the Parliament to the president of the state, to be granted a mandate for forming a new government. We cannot have talks about the constituting one organ without having a mandate. Therefore, firstly, the mandate has to be given to the mandatare and then to start talks about the departments. The managing of the departments is of less importance now. It is more important that the mandate is given to the new mandatary and that we shall start the talks about the allocation of the departments – said Ahmeti.
