FYROM heading to a snap election

FYROM will be heading to a snap election, because the largest parties in the country have issued clear signals that they are unable to come to an agreement for the voting of the Prespa agreement in parliament.

Social democrats led by PM Zoran Zaev have decided to make a final attempt to secure the necessary 80 votes in Parliament, otherwise, the country will have to hold a snap election.

SDSM said that the elections will have to be held at the end of November and that a government of technocrats will be formed.

“If VMRO-DPMNE continues to act as an obstacle for the future of this country, then we are left with no other choice but to hold a snap election”, SDSM said.

VMRO-DPMNE’s most senior officials have also met last night and have decided that the country should head to elections, demanding the election of a new attorney general, an inquiry committee for the irregularities identified in the September 30 elections and the formation of a government of technocrats.

“This would mean Zaev’s resignation and the ministry of Interior will be given to VMRO-DPMNE for a period of 100 days. This is the only way to hold free and democratic elections”, said the vice chairman of VMRO-DPMNE, Aleksandar Nikolovski.

Officials from this party have also declared that they will not negotiate the possibility of the Prespa agreement to be voted in Parliament.

Meanwhile, in case political parties unanimously decide to hold snap elections, then these elections would have to be held at the end of November. /ibna/
