Issue of Working Group for Election Dates Raised at Coordination Meeting

The topic of working groups for discussing election dates was raised at Monday’s coordination meeting of Parliamentary Group heads, convened by Talat Xhaferi.

The Parliament Speaker explained the legal procedures for scheduling elections to MPs and discussed also potential dates. According to unofficial information, he again said 5 May was the only option for the presidential and parliamentary election processes to be organised together.

So far, Xhaferi, according to his Cabinet, hasn’t received an official request from any party for a special working group to be formed regarding the issue of election dates.

He told party representatives to inform their respective leaders about all options. VMRO-DPMNE is waiting for the ruling structure to take the first step.
