Canada urges formation of new government in Macedonia without delay

Ottawa, 6 March 2017 (MIA) - Canada calls on Macedonia’s leaders to allow the formation of a new government without delay, the country's Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland said Monday in a statement on the situation in Macedonia.

“We urge all parties to continue to uphold and reinforce our shared democratic principles, including respect for democratic institutions and the rule of law," stated the statement.

“We urge the President to perform his constitutional duty and accept the formation of a new government following the December 11, 2016, parliamentary elections in Macedonia," Freeland noted.

“We look to the government authorities in Skopje, including the President, to take the next step in the democratic process and in compliance with the constitution."

Canada, Freeland added, calls on all parties to exercise restraint and to act in the best interests of Macedonia and all its citizens. ba/17:00
