Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov has refused to sign laws adopted by the Parliament sent to him with the name “Republic of North Macedonia”.
The President refuses to accept the Prespa treaty and did not sign it, leading to a legal precedent when the ratification act was published in the Official Gazette with the signature of Speaker Talat Xhaferi.

Under the Constitution, the laws returned by President Ivanov to the Parliament will have to be voted on again. If they pass again, they will be resent to the Parliament, and the Constitution declares that then the President will sign them. Ivanov has already refused to do so in the case of the clearly unconstitutional law on the use of languages, so it is possible that until the end of his term in May any new laws will also lack his signature.
