Macedonian Government expects two-thirds majority for constitutional revision


Spokesman Mile Bosnjakovski reiterated Wednesday the Government's expectations for a two-thirds majority in Parliament for endorsement of the constitutional changes.

The Parliament's Committee on Constitutional Issues is set to begin the debate on the Government's motion over the need for constitutional amendments today, with Prime Minister Zoran Zaev addressing the body.

"We believe MPs are faced with a historic decision, which is crucial for the realization of Macedonia's strategic objectives of NATO and EU membership. We believe and expect that the majority of MPs will respect the will of the majority of citizens who said 'Yes' at the September 30 referendum," Bosnjakovski told a press conference related to the decisions of yesterday's Government session. 

“The Government of the Republic of Macedonia has determined the text in line with the indications presented in the discussion at the Government session and on the basis of Article 130 of the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia and articles 193 and 194 of the Rules of Procedure of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia has concluded to submit it to the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia, with a proposal to the Assembly to review and to make a decision for accession to amendments to the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia,“ the Government said already a day earlier.
