Until September 15th, the ministries and other institutions will be explained the exact role in the screening, which is a formal and technical operation carried out by the European Commission in order to prepare the accession negotiations. In parallel with the screening, constitutional amendments should be worked on, said the Deputy Prime Minister for European Affairs Bojan Marichikj.
Marichikj explained that it is about “finishing the negotiating structure with all the necessary acts and appointments” and that there is a “good chance” that the Parliament will complete the constitutional amendments that are required according to the negotiations with Sofia.
“I think that by the end of the screening, there is a good chance that we will complete the constitutional amendments with a simple question to every MP, because this is a dilemma that will be faced by every MP: Are you in favor of North Macedonia’s membership in the EU or not? This is the essential question that needs to be answered,” said Marichikj.
