The crisis in Macedonia is not yet over. There have been positive steps in terms of the Pržino Agreement, especially that elections were scheduled for December 11 and which are a vital opportunity to overcome the crisis, said EU Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn at a press conference after the presentation of the progress reports from the region.
When Hahn was asked by “Meta” whether Parliament should extend the mandate of the Special Public Prosecutor and should form a special unit in court, Hahn replied that the most important thing now is to have credible elections, then a new government, and that government should take care of those issues .
“Firstly, there must be fair and democratic elections, in accordance with EU standards, and then the new government will have to carry out reforms and resolve these issues. There is still time and the SPO should continue to do their job. Currently there is a need to evaluate the situation, but we should focus on the elections, the formation of a new government that will carry out the following steps. The goal is that the Pržino Agreement will fully solve the crisis”, said Hahn.
According to the Commissioner, the situation is not easy, nor for the country and key figures in the country, but the SPO has an important role in its further stabilization of the political situation of the country.
“I hope that everyone is aware of their own responsibility, and that they will take the necessary measures and will be respectful of each other’s operations”, said Hahn.
