On the last day of the term of outgoing President Gjorge Ivanov, or on Sunday, president-elect Stevo Pendarovski will be inaugurated.
According to the announcements, Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi will schedule a session on Sunday, which will be attended MPs, ministers, religious leaders, constitutional judges and the diplomatic corps, and where Pendarovski will take the oath of office.
According to the practice so far, Pendarovski will head to the presidential palace where, at a short ceremony, the outgoing president will hand over office to the new president.
Parliament Speaker Xhaferi told Vecer that a session will be held on Sunday, regardless when Pendarovski will receive the SEC certificate.
A session must be held, Sunday is the last day of Ivanov’s term and there must not be a pause. I will schedule a session on Sunday, no matter if the certificate arrives on Saturday or Sunday morning, Xhaferi said.
