Leadership meeting tomorrow about the elections, the technical government and European integration
Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski will hold a leadership meeting with the presidents of the parliamentary political parties tomorrow at noon in the Assembly of the Republic of North Macedonia.
The meeting, as announced, will be held in the Crystal Hall of the Assembly at 12 o'clock.
It remains unclear whether European integration will be the topic of the leadership meeting. Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski, in the announcement that he will convene a leadership meeting, indicated them as one of the topics to be discussed, but they were not on the agenda that the opposition VMRO-DPMNE announced as acceptable for holding a leadership meeting.
European integration, regular presidential and parliamentary elections, as well as amendments to the Electoral Code according to the recommendations of the OSCE/ODIHR, were indicated by Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski as the topics of the leadership meeting.
VMRO-DPMNE then came out with the view that a leadership meeting is acceptable, but at which it would be discussed to finally specify a date for elections, accept the observations of the OSCE/ODIHR, as well as the offer to abolish the technical government, in exchange for there is no technical prime minister from DUI.
Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski said that a successful leadership meeting means that the political parties will sit at the table and there will be no blackmail from one political party to another.
- I expect a constructive leadership meeting in which all political parties represented in the Parliament will participate, because that is the way a democratic society functions, where everyone who participates in a competition should have a say in the way the competition is organized - Kovacevski said in answer to a journalist's question after a visit to the "ATS AMMO" factory in Makedonski brod.
The final word on the date of holding the parliamentary and presidential elections, as Kovacevski said, should be given by the parties, but according to the calendar, the greatest possibility for such a thing is in the month of May, reminding that next year will be the first regular parliamentary elections in our country after 2006 year.
