The Macedonian Parliament accepted the resignation of former Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski today. Gruevski resigned as member of Parliament after a procedure was initiated to strip him of his mandate due to his absence for more than six months. Over this period, he’s been in Hungary, where he received political asylum after the campaign of persecution aimed at him and his main associates. Georgi Kamcev will enter Parliament in Gruevski’s place. The Parliament also accepted the resignation of SDSM member Pavle Bogoevski.
