Ivanov: Obstacles not removed to grant mandate
Monday, 13 March 2017

The obstacles for assignment of the mandate have still not been removed, says the President's Office following SDSM's calls to Ivanov to give the government mandate to party leader Zoran Zaev.

"President Ivanov abides by the stance presented in his March 1 public address. The obstacles for assignment of the government mandate have still not been removed", said the Office on Monday.

In the above-mentioned address, President Ivanov urged SDSM leader Zaev to reject and condemn the Tirana platform, which "brings into question the interests of Macedonia and its citizens".

"As long as I am the President of Macedonia, I will not give the mandate to a person or a party that promotes or includes in its programme a platform threatening the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of the Republic of Macedonia. I will not back down from these fundamental values that no one has the right to trade with", said Ivanov.
