Mickoski: We will submit amendments to the law on languages ​​so that it becomes constitutional


Opposition party VMRO-DPMNE will submit amendments to the Law on Languages ​​to make it constitutional, its leader Hristijan Mickoski said Monday at a news conference, and he expects the government will support  them if it is truly committed to justice and urges Prime Minister Zoran Zaev that politics pursued solely for the sake of coming to power is now showing consequences.

The Venice Commission is expected to release a report late in the afternoon with recommendations on language use law, which has been interpreted differently by political parties for several days.

The Venice Commission on Friday recommended reviewing the law on languages ​​and abandoning bilingual provisions in court proceedings, and called on Macedonian authorities to review the law on the use of languages ​​through consultations with all parties involved. Council of Europe legal experts point out that compared to the 2008 legislation, the new law significantly expands the use of the Albanian language and in many respects exceeds the European standards set by the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities and the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages.
