Opposition MPs Request Resignations from Filipce and Hasani

The MPs from the opposition VMRO-DPMNE asked the PS Talat Xhaferi as the first point of the 50th session, to find a draft decision to dismiss Venko Filipce from the post of Minister of Health, which was rejected by the Speaker of Parliament with the explanation that, according to the Constitution, such a proposal should be submitted by the Prime Minister. Xhaferi emphasized that he had not received such a proposal from the Prime Minister. “The procedure for dismissal of a member of the Government is sanctioned in Article 94 of the Constitution. Paragraph one of Article 94 states that a member of the Government has the right to resign. The Prime Minister may propose the dismissal of a member of the Government. The proposal for dismissal of a member of the Government is decided by Parliament at the next session,” Xhaferi explained. Xhaferi, interrupted the 50th session before its agenda was voted and rescheduled it for Wednesday at 12 o’clock, after the opposition MPs previously said that they would not participate in the work of the Parliament, because their draft decisions for dismissal of the Minister of Health Venko Filipce and his Deputy Ilir Hasani were not on the agenda.
