PM Zaev Elaborates Motion for Constitutional Revision; Calls for Reconciliation

Prime Minister Zoran Zaev elaborated the motion for constitutional revision in parliament, saying the country’s future lies in the hands of the MPs, urging them to vote according to their own will, especially the ones who are reluctant. “Look to the future, the future of your children. The citizens’ will is for the country to move forward,” said PM Zaev. According to him, the other option would put the country into isolation and bring back the political trauma from the past 27 years, and especially from the recent period. The PM said the vote for European future would take the country towards full-fledged NATO and EU membership. He said partisan divisions should end, sending a message of reconciliation over the April 27 events in Parliament. “Here is a chance to forgive ourselves. Let’s extend our hands,” said Zaev and added that people would not forgive themselves if politicians and MPs did not.
