Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has said the attempts to block the Parliament during a global pandemic is dangerous, shameful and irresponsible, calling opposition MPs to reassess their positions.

Obviously, Hristijan Mickoski and VMRO-DPMNE want to compensate for the lack of their position, measure, proposal or policy by causing harm to the citizens, at a time when they need help from the state. They are trying to block the passing of laws in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic, including those for vouchers of 6,000 denars, to help retirees, single parents, freelance artists and filmmakers, as well as measures to help farmers. I urge to withdraw this senseless obstruction of the work of the Parliament and to accept the possibility, as everywhere in the world, for online remote working, Zaev wrote on Facebook.

He said that the people need a functioning Parliament and that every political party should represent the interests of the citizens.
