Starting at noon, President Gjorge Ivanov will deliver his annual speech at the Parliament.

Opposition party MPs are still deciding whether to attend Ivanov’s annual speech.

In the forthcoming days, they shall be making another major decision i.e. whether they should re-engage in the Parliament’s work.

Because the Parliament wasn’t constituted this time last year, Ivanov made his speech from the presidential residence.

In 2015, Ivanov made his speech in a semi-empty Parliament in the absence of SDSM and DUI’s MPs.

Back then, he called upon unification and putting an end to the political crisis and stated that 2016 will be a test for Macedonia.
