FYROM’s Opposition to Support Constitutional Changes If Referendum Approved

Hristijan Mickoski, the leader of the opposition in F.Y.R.O.M.

Hristijan Mickoski, the leader of the main opposition VMRO-DPMNE party in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, speaking with journalists of broadcaster TV21, said that “we will respect the decision,” referring to a possible positive outcome in the upcoming referendum.

Mickoski, making a significant shift in his party’s stance towards the Prespa Agreement that was achieved with Greece earlier this year, promised that when the constitutional changes foreseen in the agreement are tabled in FYROM’s Parliament, the MPs of his party will support them.


Regarding the referendum that is scheduled to take place on September 30, Mickoski said that his supporters should vote “with their conscience.”

When asked, though, if he agrees with the agreement reached with Greece, Mickoski repeated that his party is in favor of FYROM’s membership in NATO but against the Prespa Agreement, adding that the question that will be asked in the referendum is manipulative.
