Parliament in FYROM adopts the law on language amid a tense situation

With 64 votes in favor and no votes against, Parliament of FYROM adopted today the law on languages, which advances the use of the Albanian language in central institutions and throughout the country’s territory.

The parliamentary session was held in a tense situation, as VMRO-DPMNE MPs tried to block the voting. At a particular moment there was also a verbal incident between speaker of Parliament, Talat Xhaferi and former PM and MP, Nikola Gruevski, who tried to block the voting of the law.

While the session continued, associations and supporters of the opposition protested outside Parliament against the voting of this law. /balkaneu.com/
