Macedonia's President and Government broke the Constitution
Wednesday, 15 February 2017


Macedonia has a Government in place. The Ministers in place from the previous Government will remain in their roles until new Government is elected. 

However, the MPs have thus far not elected or agreed to a new Government.

Lets read act 90 of the Macedonian Constitution. "The Macedonian president is required by law within 20 days of the forming of the Macedonian Parliament to give the mandate to the political party with majority in Parliament. The winning political party has 20 days from the day it has received the mandate to form Government. The Government, as proposed by the political party with the given mandate is voted on by majority of Parliament".

The Macedonian elections were held on December 11th, and completed officially on December 25th, 2016.

President Ivanov gave the mandate to the winning political party, VMRO-DPMNE on January 9th.

On January 29th, the VMRO-DPMNE stated it cannot form a Government and returned the mandate. 

This is where it all ended. Act 90 of the Macedonian constitution is exhausted. After January 29th, no one has the right to form a Government in the land of "anything goes".

Becuase the Consitution does not specifically state Parliament must be disbanded, the MPs themselves will need to do this. Legally, there is no other choice. Everything we see and continue to see after January 29th is illegal and anti-Constitutional.
