Hristijan Mickoski

Agreement reached between Zaev and Mickoski for a new SEC


After voting in the Parliament for the confidence of the Government, the government and the opposition will implement the agreement reached between Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski for a new composition of the State Election Commission. It will be the first test for the reform package, which brings opposition MPs back to parliament, although the change in the election of SEC members was not on Reinhard Priebe’s list, but an independent decision by political leaders in the country. According to the information, it is a request by VMRO-DPMNE, which SDSM accepted only to satisfy the opposition and to force it to return the Parliament in order to pass the reform laws, which require a two-third majority.

Accordingly, amendments to the Electoral Code should now be adopted in order to change the SEC concept. The model that was agreed during the negotiations in Przino, when there were three members of the SEC from the expert circles and the largest ruling and opposition parties, will no longer be valid. In contrast, it will go to the SEC to function as an administrative body, headed by the Secretary General proposed by the opposition. The composition of the SEC, to be elected also in an announcement, will meet six months before the regular elections and will be in session until the end of the election cycle.

Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs in Skopje for historic visit

in EUROPE by

VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski met on Friday with Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias. Mickoski emphasized that his party supports developing good neighborly relations, based on sincere friendship and mutual respect. Mickoski pointed out that the Republic of Macedonia must continue its Euro-Atlantic agenda and the process should be unblocked. It will also contribute to the integration and stabilization of the region through enhanced cooperation within the framework of the global structures that Macedonia naturally belongs to.

During the meeting, VMRO-DPMNE’s leader expressed concern about certain steps in the Greek society that irritate and incite negative feeling towards Macedonia, and they are not helpful to the overall process: he also stressed that the solution negotiated by the Zaev’s government should respect state and national interests.
