DUI nominates Xhaferi for Parliament Speaker
Friday, 24 March 2017

Talat Xhaferi has been nominated by DUI and by the parliamentary majority to become the new Speaker of the Macedonian Parliament.

"He is a seasoned member of Parliament, having served as a coordinator of a parliamentary group for several mandates in a row. He has also served as a minister of defense. We believe Xhaferi will efficiently perform his duty as head of Parliament in times of deep divisions in Parliament. This (appointment) is one of the DUI's pledges - one of the three top state positions in the country to be taken up by an Albanian," DUI spokesman Bujar Osmani told TV21 on Friday.

According to him, a procedure to elect Talat Xhaferi as Parliament Speaker is expected to be kicked off starting Monday.
