At the session of the Executive Board of SDSM, which began around 9 pm tonight, the final decision was made: No early parliamentary elections, CIVIL MEDIA has learned from party leadership sources.

The session was dominated by the assessment that reforms and integration are more important and that early parliamentary elections would have negative effects on the dynamics of these important processes for the Euro-Atlantic future of our country.

The discussion continues on other topics such as presidential elections and nominations submitted in the party’s open call. It is expected to discuss the coalition with DUI and other government partners in the presidential election tonight, although officially there is no confirmation whether this topic will be opened tonight.

This decision could have been foreseen, especially after the strong recommendations coming from the international community and some of the domestic civil society organizations and experts, according to which the government must devote itself to reforms in the country.
