Balancer Tool being Advanced to Equitable Representation Law, Says Mexhiti

1st Deputy PM and Environment Minister Izet Mexhiti said on Monday the Balancer tool was not being abolished, adding that it was actually being advanced to an equitable representation law.

“That will be in the interest of the multicultural and multiethnic North Macedonia. After 2001, the mechanism was in the function of representation of minor communities. However, over the past years, it has had the opposite effect. There have been many cases in which an ethnic Macedonian, in order to get a job, declared they were an Albanian, Turk, Vlach or something else or vice-versa at a local level,” he stated.
