Macedonian President Stevo Pеndarovski believes that the demand of the opposition party VMRO-DPMNE that the constitutional amendments be passed, but valid after N. Macedonia joinsthe EU, is beyond reality.
On the statements of Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski and VMRO-DPMNE’s Hristijan Mickoski after the meeting and who accepted what, the President said if one closely followed both statements, “both parties are right”.
“The PM is right when claiming there has been a drastic shift in the stance of the opposition party, which had not accepted to even vote on the implementation of constitutional changes under Bulgarian dictate, while repeating that MPs have no mandate for this. On the other hand, the opposition is right when it comes to the prerequisites it set at the meeting,” said Pendarovski.
Regarding one of the conditions – the delayed enforcement of the constitutional amendments up until the completion of the ratification process of North Macedonia’s EU accession protocol – the President said this was absolutely unrealistic.
