Hahn: MPs to put party interest behind and vote for the future

EU Commissioner for European Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn said Friday he was confident that the lawmakers of all political parties in the Macedonian Parliament will put party interest behind and act in the interest of the country and its people.

“These are decisive days for FYROM. MPs will vote on the historic Prespa agreement which opens the door to the country’s Euro-Atlantic integration. It is a vote about the future of the country and positive perspectives for its people.”

“I am confident that lawmakers of all political forces are aware of the huge opportunity and responsibility they are facing today. This is the time to put party interests behind and act in the interest of the country and its people,” Commissioner Hahn tweeted today ahead of a closing debate in Parliament about the constitutional changes, stemming from the name deal, which were proposed by the government.
