Nano Ruzin: The new name is probably already determined, now Greece is looking for a guarantor

Professor Nano Ruzin says that according to the statements of Greek Prime Minister Tsipras, seeking change of the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia, we can conclude that the solution is close.

“According to the statements, we came to a final stage, probably the name has already been determined and now Greece is looking for a guarantor. That guarantor, in their opinion, is the Constitution of Macedonia, but in order to do so, it is necessary to have a two-thirds majority, which at this moment will hardly be secured by our Government, which would lead to new elections,” says Ruzin.

He adds that the Constitution is not a guarantor at all because it does not guarantee that tomorrow there will be no other political party in power that will propose to return the old name.

Maybe they require constitutional changes because they fear that an international agreement will be torn down by the Constitutional Court, they have the experience where an agreement with Albania was torn down by the Albanian Constitutional Court, but our Constitutional Court does not have such competence, says Nano Ruzin.
