Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Ilhan Kyuchyuk, commenting on the recent announcements for boycott of Parliament and government by opposition parties from the Albanian political bloc in Macedonia, says that the opposition belongs in the Parliament. “I believe that elections in North Macedonia were fair and legitimate which were held in an extremely difficult situation during the global pandemic. The citizens of the country used their political right to decide who will lead North Macedonia through the basic stages of complex EU accession negotiations. Obviously, the citizens want to link country’s future with the European Union. We acknowledge this fact and stand ready to continue to support parliament and the newly elected government, including our contacts with the opposition,” Kyuchyuk said in an interview for daily newspaper Koha.
