Two months after the elections, Macedonia is yet to form a government

Political leaders in the Republic of Macedonia are yet to come to an agreement on the creation of a new government in the country. A visit last week by EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn to Skopje did not assist in producing a solution either.

Hahn said that the quality of the new government is more important than the speed with which it is created.

“It seems that this will take time. Political parties must negotiate and take decisions which are in the best interest of the country, the citizens and European perspective. We will do everything to help the country and the leadership in the country. Quality is far more important than speed. Political leaders must negotiate and show their democratic maturity. They must have an excellent program based on the Przino Agreement, on the European perspective and if this is the case, I am optimistic for the future of the country,” Hahn said.
