Parliamentary Committee Endorses Changes to Law on Citizenship

The President of the Parliamentary Committee on European Affairs Arber Ademi stated on Monday evening that none of the amendments filed to the Changes to the Law on Citizenship were accepted during the second reading of the law-changes. “On the first day of the debate, and today on the second one, there were many procedural interventions by the oppositions, but in the end, majority of the Committee members endorsed the law-changes, after which this law will be put up for voting at the 47th session of the Parliament. The Committee today only discussed the amendments filed by Levica MP Borislav Krmov, after we were informed by Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi that those of VMRO-DPMNE were not properly filed to the Parliament,” Ademi said. These law-changes will allow people who lived on the territory of North Macedonia before declaring independence from Yugoslavia to acquire citizenship.
