Mickoski: No change of Constitution to change the name

VMRO-DPMNE does not accept the Constitution to be amended in order the constitutional name to be changed, said opposition leader Hristijan Mickoski after Saturday’s leaders’ meeting in which PM Zoran Zaev briefed state and party leaders about the name talks.

“We were informed about the proposal for the first time today, it will be presented to the party’s bodies before it informs the public,” Mickoski told reporters adding that the whole process was ‘shrouded in secrecy.’

VMRO-DPMNE’s position in view of constitutional changes remains unchanged, he added.

“And the proposal presented by Zaev requires the constitution to be changed, i.e. a name for overall use,” Mickoski said.
