Skopje, 24 January 2018 (MIA) - The Law on the Use of Languages will undergo scrutiny in the Venice Commission after its adoption in the Parliament, whereas remarks will be incorporated in the law.
Government Spokesman Mile Bosnjakovski told Wednesday's press briefing that the law complies with the Constitution, supported by majority of MPs. He again urged the opposition to return to the parliament for the amendment debate over the law on Monday.
"The Parliament is the place where VMRO-DPMNE MPs are supposed to file their proposals. The Government decided to forward the law to the Venice Commission in August of last year. There is political will in the country to incorporate its remarks and opinions in the law," said Bosnjakovski.
The law was passed on 11 January but President Gjorge Ivanov did not sign the bill. MPs will again discuss the law at a repeated plenary debate next Monday. ik/13:23
