FYROM’s Zaev secures majority for Prespes Agreement, per high-level source in Skopje
Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has secured the two-thirds majority he needs in parliament to get approval for the constitutional changes related to the Prespes Agreement, a high-level source in Skopje said on Friday speaking on condition of anonymity.
The Prespes Agreement between Greece and FYROM resolves the outstanding name issue and requires ratification by the parliaments of both countries to go into effect.
The source said that two deputies of the “BESA” opposition party will vote for the changes, which include a new name for FYROM.
The latest plenary discussion is expected to begin shortly in Skopje.
