At the session, only a few MPs from SDSM’s 49 remained, including party leader, Zoran Zaev.
Aleksandar Kiracovski, an MP for SDSM announced the walkout and said that what’s going on in Parliament is a joke and announced that SDSM MPs will stop addressing Parliament.
“This farce in Parliament must come to a stop. In this context, I declare that my fellow MPs and I will give up addressing Parliament, but we will point out any procedural objections. Eight working days have passed, yet nothing constructive has been done. We are just wasting the time and money of the people. Trajko Veljanoski is responsible for this. If he worked in accordance with the rules of procedure, by now we would have selected a Commission for Elections and Appointments, we would have chosen a Parliament Speaker and we would have debated the new government”, said Kiracovski.
Before the lunch break, MPs from VMRO-DPMNE made their remarks and counter remarks concerning the platform of the Albanian parties and the preservation of the Macedonian language.
