VMRO-DPMNE Announces Signature Collection Against Census Law

VMRO-DPMNE announced that it will start collecting at least 10,000 signatures for annulment of the Law on Census, which was published Tuesday in the Official Gazette. MP and university professor Gordana Siljanovska Davkova at the press conference explained that the procedure is initiated because in the past opposition parties submitted proposals for laws, but they were never put on the agenda in Parliament. Due to that, VMRO-DPMNE decided to collect signatures from the citizens for annulment of the Law on Census. Regarding the census of the diaspora, Siljanovska Davkova stated that “those who have been abroad for more than 12 months are residents there”. Siljanovska Davkova also presented a series of arguments, which, according to her, indicate political dimension of the Law on Census.
