No formal conditions for language law debate: speaker Xhaferi

 Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi postponed Monday the debate on the Law on the Use of Languages, saying it would continue once conditions were met.

“The 35,569 amendments have not been processed yet. The formal conditions for the opening of this agenda item have not been met, as stipulated in the Rules of Procedure,” said Xhaferi.

The Speaker adjourned today’s 32. session due to lack of quorum and scheduled the continuation for Tuesday at noon.

The Law on the Use of Languages was passed on 11 January but President Gjorge Ivanov did not sign the bill, meaning that Speaker Xhaferi was obliged to put it for repeated plenary debate.
