Election of President in Parliament is DUI’s Condition for Support in 2nd Round

In an interview with Sitel on Saturday, Deputy PM Artan Grubi, who’s part of DUI, said if Bujar Osmani didn’t enter the second round, his party’s votes would be given to the party that will agree to the President being elected in Parliament in the future.

“We have a very clear stand. Mister Ahmeti has said that too, while that is in our programme as well,” he stressed.

According to Grubi, the process would see both a two-thirds majority and the Badinter principle used.

“That would provide consensus in society,” Grubi pointed out. The following day, both SDSM and VMRO-DPMNE rejected the condition.
