Macedonian Parliament adopts constitutional amendments

SKOPJE – Parliament of Macedonia has adopted four amendments to the country’s constitution this evening, renaming it to the Republic of North Macedonia, thus fulfilling its obligations arising from the Prespa Agreement signed in June last year.

A total of 81 MPs (out of 120) voted in favour of the Government’s proposal, with no votes against or withheld (the opposition was not present).

According to the Constitutional law which was also passed, these amendments are entering into force as soon as the Prespa Agreement enters into force completely i.e. as soon as it is ratified at the Greek parliament, META reports.
