SEC: We do not have the authority to decide on the appointment of officials


The SEC has declared itself incompetent to resolve the dispute between Minister Culev and his additional deputy Petrovska over the appointment of a new head of the SIA Skopje.

By a unanimous decision, members of the SEC stated that it was not a question of legal, financial and staffing issues related to the organization of the elections.

With this decision, the SEC has practically determined that the appointment of Risto Stavrevski as the new chief of SIA Skopje signed by the interim minister Culev is legal.

According to the Law on Government, the decisions of all ministers and their additional deputies in the caretaker government require two signatures, i.e. they have joint signatures.

In case of disagreement between the Minister and the Additional Deputy Minister in the ministries as to whether a particular legal, financial and staffing issue relates to the organization of the elections, the SEC is obliged to make a decision within 24 hours and forward it to the relevant ministry.  The SEC’s decision is final.
