MPs resume debate over Zvrlevski's dismissal

MPs resume debate over Zvrlevski

Skopje, 12 August 2017 (MIA) – Macedonia's Parliament resumed Saturday the debate on the motion for dismissal of Public Prosecutor Marko Zvrlevski.

The Government filed the motion for Zvrlevski's dismissal due to his poor and unprofessional performance.

VMRO-DPMNE MPs consider the motion as unsubstantiated, quoting Article 8 of the Electoral Code, which, as they say, bans appointment and dismissal of office holders after calling of elections.

The opposition claims the Zvrlevski debate is a way to defocus the public from topics of current interest, such as the indebtedness, fires, strategy for refugees. According to them, Zvrlevski's dismissal should occur after the October 15 local elections.

SDSM group coordinator Tomislav Tuntev said the MPs from the majority have renounced their right to speak during the debate in order to dismiss Zvrlevski as soon as possible, followed by the election of a new public prosecutor and the start of reforms in the judiciary. lk/14:33
