The European Free Alliance, as an association that functions in the EP and represents the minority groups in Europe, including the two parties of the Macedonians – Rainbow from Greece and OMO “Ilinden” – PIRIN from Bulgaria, managed to intervene at Wednesday’s vote with a remark that the minority living in Prespa, Golo Brdo and Gora is Macedonian, not Bulgarian. The remark is in fact a reaction to the amendment filed by Bulgarian MEPs Andrey Kovatchev and Angel Dzhambazki in which the Albanian authorities are asked to protect the rights of the Bulgarian minority in those three places, which is part of the draft-resolution on Albania as Article 24. The Bulgarian MEPs didn’t expect such a reaction from some of the members of the Alliance, which reiterates that it will constantly react in situations confirming that Bulgaria has a hidden agenda of distorting the truth about existence of a Macedonian minority in Albania.
