This afternoon’s part of today’s parliamentary session in Macedonia, to elect a new government proposed by the Prime Minister-designate Zoran Zaev, was full of arguments over who was a criminal and who has done what, who has been incriminated and who has not. However, there were other disagreements too, some over procedure, – such as how much time can one speak – this argument was between Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi and MPs from VMRO-DPMNE, Ilija Dimovski and Vladimir Gjorcev. Towards the end, the discussion turned towards the economy, and the lack of Albanian women in the new government.
After the lunch break, there were remarks and counter remarks between Tomislav Tuntev from SDSM, Antonio Milososki, Frosina Tashevska–Remenski and Ilija Dimovski over political ‘revanchism’, “Gordana’s notebook and the Swarovski judiciary”, but also, over Bujar Osmani’s “crime” or success.
Remenski, responding to Milososki and Dimovski, said she expects an apology for the events that took place on April the 27th and for the behavior of their colleagues, if they want to taken seriously.
Then followed a long discussion between Talat Xhaferi and MPs from VMRO-DPMNE regarding who spoke from their seat instead of the rostrum. Then Xhaferi announced a break.
Before the interruption of the session at 19:20, Teuta Biljali from the Besa Movement changed the topic of discussion to economic issues, saying she was disappointed that the cabinet proposed by Zaev, had no Albanian women.
Parliament Speaker, Talat Xhaferi scheduled the continuation of the session to elect the new government for tomorrow at 12:00pm.
