Protracted Parliament debate ends, 2016 budget report adopted

Protracted Parliament debate ends, 2016 budget report adopted

Skopje, 16 July 2017 (MIA) - On Saturday evening, the Macedonian Parliament adopted the final report on the implementation of the 2016 budget. This ended the protracted debate which lasted late into the night between Friday and Saturday, as VMRO-DPMNE used the option of debate between its now 10 separate groups in Parliament, while Speaker Talat Xhaferi, whose election VMRO-DPMNE disputes, said he will drag the debate into the weekend and the early morning hours.

Eventually, the Parliament voted with 92 votes in favor to accept the report. Also, the majority in Parliament decided to remove current Parliament Secretary General Zarko Denkovski, and to appoint Cvetanka Ivanova in his place. Ivanova is a former SDSM member of Parliament.cc/12:34
