Macedonian SDSM leader Zaev demands mandate to form a government

The leader of SDSM (Macedonian Social Democratic Union), Zoran Zaev has requested a mandate from president George Ivanov to form the new government in the Republic of Macedonia.

This came a day after VMRO-DPMNE leader Nikola Gruevski failed to meet the deadline to form a government.
