Committee on Election and Appointment Issues Continues Debate on Joveski

The debate in the frames of Parliament’s Committee on Election and Appointment Issues on the nomination of Public Prosecutor Ljubomir Joveski as Constitutional Court judge has continued. MPs from VMRO-DPMNE tried, through a limitless debate, to prevent from him being approved by the working body. At certain moments, the situation was even tense. The opposition MPs accused the Chairperson, Marija Georgievska, of violating the provisions from the Rules of Procedure. However, Georgievska is adamant that VMRO-DPMNE’s representatives are trying to abuse procedural speeches to stall or block the body’s work over the election of judges.
