Political parties that have secured a majority in parliament to form a new government in the Republic of Macedonia have said that they will hold talks in order to elect the speaker of Parliament. This is the 74th day that the country does not have a speaker of parliament, after the December 11 elections. Sources within SDSM (Macedonian Social Democratic Union) and BDI (Democratic Union for Integration) have said that parliament is expected to convene by the end of the week.
