The inauguration of president George Ivanov, held on May 12 2014 in the parliament of Macedonia in Skopje, saw the absence of the Macedonian opposition, but also of MPs from the Albanian party, BDI (Democratic Union for Integration), who do not consider the president elected in the April 27 elections as a legitimate president.
In his speech as a president who has won a second term in office, Ivanov considered the elections as highly democratic and fair.
The president also talked about the priority issues during this term in office, while he dwelt on the dispute with Greece on the use of the name “Macedonia”, saying that he would not allow constitutional changes for the change of the country’s name.
