Reactions to latest Developments in PPO Draft Law continue

The eight-member independent group of VMRO-DPMNE has its own remarks about the part of the Public Prosecutor’s Office Draft Law concerning the Special Prosecutor’s Office, but it still hasn’t revealed them. Commenting on Monday’s meeting with VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski, the group said on Tuesday that it had heard his stands. However, it added that it would present its viewpoints once its members were included in the process. Though the Justice Ministry had said the previous day it would continue consultations with political parties and parliamentary groups from the opposition, MP Zecir Ramcilovic stated that the eight members of the group still hadn’t been summoned. The group hasn’t held consultations with ruling majority counterparts either. However, the eight MPs adhere to the stand that the document should be adopted with wide political consensus. The Justice Ministry had told VMRO-DPMNE that it expected its amendments, adding that the Draft Law contained all international standards. Mickoski’s party said the Ministry’s press-release meant the institution had admitted that it had previously skipped over all international documents.
