After the NATO summit, we will have meeting in Parliament, all political parties, to define the data for a referendum, the details of the question for the referendum, and the character of the referendum, Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev told Greek News Agency ANA-MPA, citing possible dates for holding the referendum as September 22 or 30 or October 7. He also says that constitutional changes would be made in 90 to 110 days from now.

“After the NATO summit, we will have meeting in the parliament, all political parties, to define the data for a referendum, the details of the question for the referendum, and the character of the referendum. That probably will be end of September, or beginning of October”, said Zaev, adding that it would give enough time to finalize the agreement process by the end of this year.

“After that, after the referendum, we hope that everybody will be motivated enough to contribute to the referendum process and its success”, Zaev told ANA.

The Macedonian Prime Minister in the statement for ANA-MPA emphasized that if the whole process in Macedonia is successful, it will “remain for the Greek parliament to vote for the ratification of this agreement but also to confirm the ratification of the protocol for our future membership in NATO.”
