The Central Board of the Alternative party did not reach a decision to join Zaev’s coalition today, but judging by its public statements, Afrim Gashi’s party is moving in that direction.

The party today empowered the leader to enter into talks with the current Prime Minister and the future Prime Minister, to see what their concept for exiting the crisis will be. We will hear their version and see if there is will for a shared program, and whether the partners in the Government will give up their power so there is some balance, said Alternative spokesman Orhan Murtezani.

Once these talks, which likely include division of seats in the Government as well as waiting to see how the internal crisis in SDSM develops, are over, the party will decide whether to give SDSM its four seats in Parliament, that are enough to form another fragile majority.
