Ljupco Svrgovski is new Macedonian public prosecutor

Ljupco Svrgovski is new Macedonian Public Prosecutor, voted the Parliament on Wednesday.

Svrgovski, who comes to office from the position of deputy public prosecutor of the City of Skopje, was elected with 61 votes "for" and none "against" due to opposition boycott of the voting.

The discussion for Svrgovski's election started on Wednesday, after moving the item into the agenda.

During the discussion, the opposition at first disputed the order of items of the agenda, and afterwards - the procedure itself, stating that the voting is illegal due to it being performed by the old Law on Public Prosecutor.

Ljupco Svrgovski was chosen by the Government as a candidate for Public Prosecutor's office among 13 applicants to the public announcement.

Svrgovski replaces Aleksandar Prcevski, released last October by the Parliament upon Government's request, explained with Prcevski's alleged unprofessional and poor performance.
