The gridlock that former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia has seen for a while now, may be ending at the end of this year.

Leader of opposition leader SDSM (Macedonian Social Democratic Union), Zoran Zaev said that he was optimistic that the elections scheduled to take place within the year, will not be postponed.

His declaration comes two days before the meeting of the leaders of the four main political parties, who must evaluate if the June agreement has been fulfilled in order to take the country to early elections, as part of the political crisis. “I believe that on 31 August, we, leaders of the largest political parties will declare 11 December as the election date”, Zaev said.

Leaders of VMRO-DPMNE, SDSM, BDI and PDSH are set to meet on Wednesday to evaluate if the conditions for early elections have been met, to then proceed with the date for the elections. /balkaneu.com/
