State of emergency was declared in Macedonia to adopt measures set to help the economy. The government is to implement its third set of economic measures by the fall and sees no need to adopt another one, SDSM leader Zoran Zaev told daily newspaper Vecher.
“There’s no reason for the government to seek a state of emergency extension, or grounds to justify such a proposal. Election deadlines remain in place, in line with legal and constitutional provisions, with polling day taking place 22 days after the state of emergency expires, in this case July 5,” the leader of SDSM said.
Restrictive measures aimed to mitigate the health effects of the coronavirus, according to Zaev, aren’t contingent on the state of emergency.
