Fouere hints at DUI for coalition partner in new government

It would be beneficial if the new government "reflects the will of the majority in all social spheres", Erwan Fouere, the EU Representative in Macedonia said.

"Any statements related to forming a coalition government would be premature, since talks with all parties, including Ali Ahmeti's DUI, are under way. We need to be patient and wait for the negotiations to wrap up", Fouere said while attending the opening the Summer School at the SEE University in Tetovo.

He added that "it is very important all parties" both Macedonian and Albanian ones, "that won significant number of votes to take part" at negotiations for forming the new government, "including of course the party that won majority of votes of the Albanians", Makfax Agency reported.

"It is not up to us to determine what parties will form a coalition", Fouere said, underscoring that "the new government should be resolute in implementation of the reforms, necessary for admission of the country in the European Union and NATO".
