Przino Agreement Pdf

However, the effervescence of Brussels is being mocked in some circles in Skopje, because the encouragement for an acceleration of democratic reforms by the new government comes largely from the European Commissioner. It was Hahn himself who, a year ago, declared that elections should be held, even if Zaev`s party was not one of them. [4] This has raised many eyebrows, since the statement came from a Commissioner, who is also vice-president of the European People`s Party (EPP), whose VP is a national member of the VP of Sebastian Kurz, a staunch supporter of the VMRO. Hahn then focused on the form of the so-called Przino agreement,[5] which called for elections in April 2016, not the content of the agreement. The agreement stipulated that elections should have conditions for free and fair elections. [6] The implementation of the Przino agreement proved problematic, as the opposition Sdsm party accused the main VMRO-DPMNE party of dragging itself. The appointment of Katica Janeva as special prosecutor was hailed as a breakthrough, but the appointment of her team (as too close to the VMRO) raised eyebrows. On 14 October 2015, the head of the SDSM, Zoran Zaev, announced that the agreement was “no longer active” after the prosecutor`s office had not nominated half of the candidates nominated by Janeva. [3] On November 4, the other candidates were elected and Katica Janeva`s team was complete.

[4] On 4 November, an agreement was reached on ministers and deputy ministers in a (technical) transitional government. The agreement demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski in January 2016. On 14 January, Nikola Gruevski officially resigned as Prime Minister of Macedonia, and on 17 January the Macedonian Assembly elected Emil Dimitriev (Par interim-PM) to head a technical government that will lead the Republic to the early parliamentary elections in June 2016. The Przino agreement or agreement from 2 June to 15 July 2015 is a political agreement between the main political parties in northern Macedonia, under the aegis of the European Union. The agreement ended Macedonia`s political and institutional crisis in the first half of 2015. It provided for the participation of the SDSM, the opposition party, in the ministries; The early resignation of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski in January 2016 and a transitional government to bring the country to parliamentary elections in June 2016, as well as a special prosecutor to lead the investigation into possible crimes highlighted by the wiretapping scandal. [1] The violent incident, which showed how ready the VMRO DPMNE was to cling to power, also ended the impasse. Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov had no choice but to give the Social Democrats and ethnic Albanian parties a mandate to form a coalition government. Since then, relations between Skopje and Brussels have been unreal.
