meta_maliSKOPJE – There is a new continuation of the constitutive session of Parliament, where MPs are expected to discuss the elections of the members and the president of the Commission for Elections and Appointments, and to appoint a Parliament Speaker. Wednesday’s statements from the parties did not indicate any change to the usual scenario of addresses and procedural objections, Meta reports.

During this short week after the Easter holidays, there is little hope that they will come to a resolution.

VMRO-DPMNE before the session stated that “the people read and opposed SDS, and have been protesting on the streets for more than 50 days, they are telling them that national and state interests are not for sale.”

Meanwhile, SDSM again announced that they have a “legitimate parliamentary majority of 67 seats, elected by more than 700.000 citizens, and in a very short time they will appoint a Parliament Speaker, then a new government, and in accordance with the Constitution, Rules and Regulations and the law.”
