Siljanovska inaugurated as Macedonian President


Gordana Siljanovska – Davkova was sworn in today as Macedonia’s sixth President since its independence. The ceremony was marked by her decision not to utter the imposed name “North Macedonia” – as the Speaker of Parliament Jovan Mitreski, from the pro-name change SDSM party, used the loathed adjective in the oath of office, Siljanovska ignored it, and used the name Republic of Macedonia.

The imposed name is contained in the official documents of the inauguration. Greek Ambassador to Macedonia, Sophia Philippidou, left the inauguration in protest, as she was previously instructed to do by official Athens, reported the Greek press, which is ramping up its reporting on Macedonia after the major victory by VMRO-DPMNE in the general elections and the VMRO candidate Siljanovska in the presidential elections.
