Before the implementation of the voting for which 80 votes were secured, there was one voting, when 74 MPs voted in favor of while 32 voted against. The Parliament’s President, Talat Xhaferi annulled this voting because previously MP Lilana Popovska has asked to address the MPs, and part of the MPs complained that their votes weren’t evidenced.
The Law on Public Prosecution wasn’t supported by VMRO-DPMNE’s MPs and since the first voting was annulled, they requested from President Stevo Pendarovski not to sign the decree that will let the law to enter into force.
They requested that the Law on changing and amending the Law on Council of Public Prosecutors be annulled because during its adoption the Bandeter’s principle wasn’t obeyed during its adoption.
Before dissolving, the Parliament also adopted the Laws on Public Prosecution and the amendments of laws of the Council of public prosecutors and defense.
