VMRO-DPMNE not to Support Decisions on State of Emergency

MPs from the opposition will not support President Stevo Pendarovski’s five decisions on state of emergency. VMRO-DPMNE considers them to represent a classic example of abuse by the ruling structure. On Wednesday, Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi, too, confirmed the VMRO-DPMNE’s parliamentarians’ decision. According to him, the work of the legislative home during states of war and emergency should be specified in accordance with the Rules of Procedure. SDSM had already confirmed it would support Pendarovski’s decision. The ruling party believes that they were necessary in terms of dealing with the consequences of the coronavirus.
