The presidents of Macedonia used the right of suspension veto many times, with Branko Crvenkovski being the record holder.
President Kiro Gligorov used this right four times in his second term – twice in 1997 and once in 1998 and in 1999. Boris Trajkovski used his right to veto six times – once in 2001 and five times in 2003.
Branko Crvenkovski used this right ten times – once in 2005, twice in 2006 and seven times in 2008. At the same time, he vetoed the previous law on the use of the language spoken by at least 20 percent of the citizens in Macedonia in the units of the local self-government.
