Decision to change Army’s name Signed by President

“Army of the Republic of North Macedonia” is the Army’s new name. President Stevo Pendarovski said on Thursday he’d signed the decision to rename it the previous day. That means that the Army should procure uniforms containing the new name in the coming period. Regarding the initiative to change the Electoral Code, the President said he didn’t have the competence to make decisions, adding that the political parties should deal with that. According to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, there have so far been no thoughts about withdrawing the Army members from the southern partner. As he added, for now, there is no danger of an inflow of a bigger number of migrants, while the EU’s assessments have shown that the Army is ready to deal with a new potential wave.
