Five years have passed since the referendum on the Agreement between Macedonia and Greece
Five years have passed since the day when a referendum was held in which the Agreement between Macedonia and Greece was voted on. On September 30, 2018, out of a total of 1.806.336, 666.743 citizens took part in the referendum, of which 609.813 voted "FOR" and 37.700 voted "AGAINST", while 19.230 ballots were declared invalid.
The Prime Minister at the time, Zoran Zaev, recalled the importance of that date on his Facebook profile today.
"Five years after the referendum on our historic step forward, we are facing new complex challenges. "Our government managed to find a compromise solution with Bulgaria presented in the European proposal and in our negotiation framework, and part of that solution also contains our obligations for which a cross-party majority agreement is necessary," said Zaev.
The agreement between the two countries was signed on June 12, 2018, resolving a decades-long dispute between the two sides.
