The Prime Minister of Macedonia ZORAN ZAEV is pressing on with a plan to change the country’s name through a referendum.

 

Prime Minister ZAEV is looking to secure a vote in parliament to bring his plan to reality in a bid to resolve a dispute with Greece over the name.

 

A fifty percent turnout in a referendum is what is required for the plan to scale through, but the official turnout is put at just thirty-six percent, with eighty-five percent of votes counted.

The head of the election commission, Oliver DERKOSKI told reporters that it was clear the decision has not been made, which is why the Prime Minister is considering a parliamentary vote.

Macedonia was had been prevented from joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, NATO, and the European Union, EU.
