The Executive and Central Committee of VMRO-DPMNE should determine the candidates for ministers from the "Your Macedonia" coalition, led by the party of the mandate holder Hristijan Mickoski, in sessions today. He announced this four days ago and announced that on Tuesday, June 18, the official list of candidates for members of the new government will be submitted to the Parliament.

In the government, which has been reorganized with legal amendments adopted in the Parliament, there will be 20 ministries, representatives of the "Your Macedonia" and "Vredi" coalitions and from the ZNAM party will participate.

A few days ago, the mandate holder Mickoski confirmed that the opposition will be the coalition "European Front" led by DUI, the coalition "European Future" led by SDSM and the political party Left.

Although specific names for certain departments are already being mentioned in the public, official proposals for ministers have been announced for the time being by Besa, ZNAM and Alternativa, which were determined by their party bodies.

The assembly of Biljal Kasami's Besa party, which is part of the "Vredi" coalition, decided at a meeting on Thursday to nominate Fatmir Limani - for Minister of Social Policy, Demography and Youth, Besar Durmishi - for Minister of Economy as members of the new Government. and Labor and Sedat Suleimani for Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism.

The central presidency of Alternativa, on the other hand, last night chose Orhan Murtezani as their candidate for Minister of European Affairs, Lulzim Aliu as candidate for Deputy Minister of Education and Science and Safiye Sadiki-Shaini as Deputy Minister for Political System and Inter-Community Relations. The current leader of this party, Afrim Gashi, is the president of the Assembly.

From the other partners in the "Vredi" coalition, according to statements in the media, it is certain that the leader of the Democratic Movement, Izet Majiti, will be the first vice prime minister and minister of ecology, and the leader of the Alliance for Albanians, Arben Taravari, will be the minister of health.

At a session of the party's Central Board, the Movement ZNAM - For our Macedonia on Friday determined its candidates with whom it will participate in the government - Igor Filkov is their candidate for Minister of Justice, and Goran Minchev - candidate for Minister of Public Administration.

Maxim Dimitrievski's party announced that they are also negotiating for two deputy ministerial positions, but the portfolios have not been defined, and one of the three vice-presidents of the Assembly is one of their ranks - MP Vesna Bendevska.

The first law adopted after the constitution of the new parliamentary composition was for the reorganization of the government (amendments to the Law on the Organization and Work of the State Administration Bodies) adopted on June 8, which created the conditions for the formation of the new government.

The number of ministries increases from 16 to 20 as new ones are introduced: Ministry of Energy, Mining and Mineral Resources; Ministry of Sports; Ministry of Digital Transformation and Ministry of European Affairs – which until now was at the secretariat level.

The competences/sectors of some ministries are transferred to others, so that we will have a Ministry of Economy and Labour; Ministry of Social Policy, Demography and Youth; Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

The new government should be formed before the expiration of the 20-day deadline that began on June 6, when the president of the state Gordana Siljanovska-Davkova gave the leader of VMRO-DPMNE Hristijan Mickoski the mandate to form the government.
