The largest Macedonian opposition party LSDM (Macedonian Social Democratic League) decided last night on the political strategy of this party after the summer elections.

The central committee of this party unanimously decided to back the decision for the boycott of parliament and not to recognize the current government, along with the request for the formation of a technical government which would hold fresh elections.

“We’re not going back to parliament for as long as the talks with the government do not include all our five demands, including the one for a technical government. This meeting also backed the actions of the opposition for dynamic activities and strategy”.

LSDM has also expelled from the party ranks two MPs, Solza Grceva and Lubica Buralieva, who didn’t comply to the party’s decision to give up on their mandates, by returning to parliament. LSDM’s decisions have also been supported by other parties of the Macedonian political block. But, on the other hand, the current majority has refused the demand for a technical government and fresh elections, but it has accepted the other demands articulated by the opposition. /ibna/
