The European Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn wrote on his Twitter account that the votes “For” at the referendum are significant and that it will provide a support for the Prespa Agreement.

“I congratulate those citizens who voted in today’s consultative referendum and made use of their democratic freedoms/ With their significant “yes” vote, there is a broad support to the Prespa Agreement and to the country’s Euro-Atlantic path. I now expect all political leaders to respect this decision and take it forward with utmost responsibility and unity across party lines, in the interest of the country,” wrote Hahn
