The reactions in the public do not stop after the Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi rejected the initiative for a referendum submitted by VMRO-DPMNE, to cancel the Treaty with Bulgaria. According to the different views of the lawyers, some of which went in the direction that the Parliament is not competent, Law Professor Mirjana Najchevska says that the referendum refers to an issue that is in the exclusive competence of the legislature.
“Please stop talking nonsense! The Treaty with Bulgaria has been ratified in Parliament. The Parliament is the only competent authority for the ratification of international agreements. Do not confuse signing an agreement with its ratification. International agreements do not produce legal effect by signing but by ratification.
Provide elementary legal literacy. And yes, the referendum refers to an issue that is in the exclusive competence of the Parliament. An exclusive one. There is no anomaly here except that people with very modest knowledge of law are university professors,” said Najchevska.
