Zaev: Law on the Public Prosecution should not be conditioned on early elections

According to North Macedonia’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, adopting the Law on the Public Prosecution should not be conditioned on early elections.

“We are against early elections”, Zaev told reporters on Monday.

“A solution needs to be reached, but not through a snap election. We’ll give public reconciliation a chance so working groups can do their job,” Zaev said, adding that they were likely to come up with a solution “as soon as this week.”
He said talks were being held at the moment and the government had accepted many suggestions given by the opposition.

PM Zaev said that the Government was also considering the VMRO-DPMNE-proposed Law on the Public Prosecution.
He wouldn’t comment on media reports alleging that Katica Janeva had asked for an anti-forensic SPO data erasure. Instead, Zaev said the question should be addressed to the relevant authorities and urged the institutions to continue the investigation.
