New Constitutional Court President Kostadinovski Holds Briefing with Journalists

If initiatives have been submitted over the office incompatibility issue in relation to Talat Xhaferi, who’s both an MP and the caretaker PM, and the non-use of the constitutional name by President Gordana Siljanovska Davkova during her swearing-in ceremony, they will be seriously considered, new Constitutional Court President Darko Kostadinovski said at a briefing with journalists on Monday.

However, as he added, even if such documents haven’t arrived, the Court will act upon its own initiatives if it has doubts. Kostadinovski stated that the Court would be active in the period ahead.

Among the new Court President’s priorities is, as he explained, restoring trust of citizens in the institution and legal state, which, he stressed, is at an all-time low.
