Monday, 01 May 2017

The visit of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Hoyt Brian Yee, once again confirms the United States' support to the election of the Speaker and the support to our steps in bringing stability and performance back to the Parliament and other institutions, said Monday Talat Xhaferi, who the SDSM-led parliamentary majority elected as Parliament Speaker last week.

"For the first time following the April 27 tragic events I have the opportunity to deliver my remarks as Parliament Speaker. My meeting with U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Yee referred to the need for stability and institutional performance of the Parliament, thus forgetting last week's effects as soon as possible", Xhaferi told reporters.

Xhaferi voiced assurance that he would be the Speaker of all MPs, regardless of their political or ethnic background and regardless of their stance over his election.

"In this regard, I will try to put the Parliament into operation as of Tuesday, though the consequences are visible even today", added Xhaferi.

Asked whether he would schedule a Parliament session, Xhaferi said he would act "in line with the competences provided in the Rules of Procedures".

In addition, he expressed hope that MPs, journalists and citizens who were injured on April 27 would recover as soon as possible.
