Skopje, 8 March 2018 (MIA) - Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi did not specify Thursday the next steps regarding the adoption of the Law on the Use of Languages, only saying that moves would comply with the Constitution and the Parliament's Rules of Procedures.
"The Speaker has no plan A, B, C, D on this issue. The Speaker has the Constitution and the Rules of Procedures, which regulate everything. The Speaker does not think about deals but implements the Rules of Procedures and the Constitution. Political parties make the deals," Xhaferi told reporters during a visit to Tetovo municipality.
Tetovo mayor Teuta Arifi said there was no reason why the law could not be adopted, adding the ruling coalition was not in crisis and that DUI was always prepared to take part at meetings aimed at overcoming existing differences.
VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickovski said earlier today that the 35,000 amendments that the party has filed regarding the law would be withdrawn only if the law itself is withdrawn.
On Tuesday, Xhaferi postponed the session over the language law, giving parties a week to reach a deal. ik/20:31
