While Macedonian opposition is getting ready for political activities outside of institutions, an MP of the largest opposition party LSDM (Macedonian Social Democratic League) has decided to return to parliament.

The MP in question is Lubica Buralieva, who a month ago, gave up on her mandate, complying with the decision of the opposition not to recognize the elections. Today she has declared that she will go back to parliament and continue her work there as representative of her voters.

“I have decided to accept my mandate and return to parliament. I’m still a member of LSDM, but it’s within my right to act in an independent way. I know that this will spark reactions, but I will seek democracy in parliament, where the citizens will be able to hear my voice”, said Buralieva.

With her return, she Buralieva becomes the second MP of the opposition to do this, as a few weeks ago, the same decision was also taken by Roza Topuzova MP. With these movements, the opposition has remained with 32 MPs who refuse to return to parliament, after the decision not to recognize April 27 elections, which according to them, were rigged by the government. /ibna/
