The leadership of the ruling SDSM party is convened and they are reportedly waiting for Zoran Zaev to join them, to discuss the fallout after the failed European Council.

Zaev flew back from Brussels after EU member states refused to allow the opening of accession talks for Macedonia and Albania – which was the main point of his campaign to rename Macedonia. Zaev made a series of threats that he will resign if he is denied the accession talks.
