Vasil Sterjovski, the first ethnic Macedonian member of the Albanian Parliament after the fall of Communism in this country, was named as a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Macedonian associations in Albania welcomed Sterjovski’s appointment to the 15 member Committee. Sterjovski was named member of Parliament ten days ago, as a result of the resignations of a number of opposition representatives.

His first order of business was to request an increase in public spending for the majority Macedonian municipality of Pustec, in south-east Albania.
