Pendarovski Sceptical About Opposition Supporting Constitutional Changes

President Stevo Pendarovski commented that it would be very difficult for a two-third majority to be secured in Parliament for the constitutional changes necessary for continuation of the EU accession talks for North Macedonia. “I really doubt that the current opposition is in the mood to support constitutional changes, even though the documents signed and ratified so far do not endanger the Macedonian language and identity in any manner. The opposition is reading the protocol with Bulgaria and the EU accession regulations with party glasses. Still, one cannot force another to endorse the constitutional changes if they estimate that those changes pose a threat for the Macedonian people. There is just too great polarisation between the main political blocks in the country which is why they cannot find compromise for the EU integrations,” Pendarovski said.
