Macedonian Parliament like Circus: Some making coffee, Talat prefers hitting the Bars


The session to discuss the law on languages was postponed for unknown reasons. Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi confirmed to Makfax that the session was postponed and blamed the political parties.

“Ask the parties why the session has been postponed,” Xhaferi told us in a telephone conversation.

“So I waited here, and could have hit the bars instead,” Xhaferi added.

The coordinator of the VRO-DPNE Parliamentary Group, Dragan Danev, said they did not know why the session was postponed, while the SDS coordinator Tomislav Tuntev did not answer our phone calls.

Initially the session was scheduled for 12 o’clock, so it was rescheduled at 3 pm. Only the MP Amdi Bajram appeared in the Assembly Hall at 3 pm. The MP from VRO-DPNE, Ilija Dimovski, who appeared shortly in the plenary hall with a cup of coffee, could not answer the journalists if today there will be a debate on the amendments to the law on languages. Earlier, Danev said that the opposition MPs did not participate in the coordination with the President of the Assembly.

While there was still no information about the session, Makfax twice called in Xhaferi’s office, from which both times said that the session would take place.

The session did not take place and no information was provided of the new date.
