Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said that the resignation of deputy ministers from the Alliance for Albanians was an expected step after party leader, Zijadin Sela, failed to accept the government’s bid for a vice-presidential post for reforms in the government.

He added that he would not rush to dismiss staff in institutions both from the previous government and from the Alliance for Albanians because, as he said, quality personnel should remain at their posts and he believes in the capacity of those citizens.

At a news conference in Government where the economic growth plan was presented, Zaev said he expects the opposition to return to parliament as soon as possible to work together on reforms that will help the country move towards the EU and NATO.

He also added that tomorrow, at MPs questions in Parliament are for opposition MPs.

– Tomorrow, MPs questions in Parliament are for MPs from the opposition, if they do not attend, the session will be short. I do not intend to answer questions from MPs for a long time from the parliamentary majority, even though they have the opportunity to ask questions. If MPs from the opposition do not attend tomorrow, I hope they will participate at the session after the New Year, scheduled on January 9th”, said Zaev.
