Less than 10 minutes after the beginning of the seventh continuation of the sixth session of the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia, the session was interrupted because MPs from VMRO-DPMNE came out onto the rostrum after a brief argument between Parliament Speaker, Talat Xhaferi, and Antonio Milososki, who came out onto the rostrum. Xhaferi urged security to intervene, but MPs from VMRO-DPMNE went out onto the rostrum and after the Speaker of Parliament ‘s appeals to leave the hall failed, Xhaferi declared a ten minute break.

The government’s proposal for dismissal of the Attorney General of the Republic of Macedonia, Marko Zvrlevski, should be discussed at the session. Firstly, Ilija Dimovski from VMRO-DPMNE spoke, who reiterated his party’s views that it was an unlawful dismissal and asked for the session to be interrupted. Dimovski at one point told Xhaferi that he was doing an illegal job, and since he started to solve this, he should start and determine the price of electricity.

MPs from VMRO-DPMNE asked the Commission for Preventing Corruption yesterday, to clarify whether the procedure for the dismissal of the Attorney General should continue, although it is unclear why the commission, whose members are on vacation, should give their opinion.

SDSM called VMRO-DPMNE’s request to postpone Zvrlevski’s dismissal after local elections absurd. The ruling party said that the procedure for dismissing Zvrlevski is completely legal and transparent.
