Constitutional amendments: Parliament in FYROM expected to convene in plenary session

Parliamentary committee for constitutional affairs in FYROM has given way to debates in plenary session of the draft amendments regarding constitutional revisions. These amendments aim at changing the country’s name to “Republic of North Macedonia”, which was agreed by Skopje and Athens in a deal that was signed on September 17 in Prespa.

Yesterday, the parliamentary committee wrapped up the first phase of this difficult challenge that MPs will have to face in a few days. However, opposition MPs led by VMRO-DPMNE voted against. Now, the government has 15 days to prepare the text with the different constitutional amendments. Parliament is expected to convene in a plenary session on Monday where MPs are expected to engage in heated debates./ibna/
