Baily’s Constitutional Court deems itself irrelevant on Referendum issue


The Constitutional Court rejected the initiative for assessing the constitutionality and legality of the Decision on announcing a referendum, adopted by the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia on 30 July 2018.

Seven constitutional judges voted in favor of the initiative, while two were against Elena Goseva and Josif Josifovski.

Judge reporter Elena Gosheva previously proposed to initiate a procedure for the decision to call a referendum and to impose an interim measure and stop all activities for a certain period.

According to her, the decision contains several legal deficiencies. The issue of the referendum, as she said, is manipulative, the type of referendum is not clear, and the full name of the Prespa agreement is not indicated. Gosheva believes that the decision on the referendum does not contain four of the seven elements for a referendum. According to her, the Referendum question should be divided into three issues.

Judges were summoned one by one, met with US Embassy Reps

Local media has reported that the majority of the judges were secretly meeting with US Embassy Representatives (likely Mitko Burcevski aka Agent Tesla) two days before today’s vote.
