Macedonian govt is “dangerously passive” about constitutional name

Skopje. The parliamentary faction of the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia /SDSM/ accused the government of being “dangerously passive” about the protection of the constitutional name of Macedonia, the correspondent of FOCUS News Agency in Skopje reported. “The Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski told members of Rotary Club in Skopje that the name of Macedonia wouldn’t be changed under pressure and force”, MP from SDSM Ilinka Mitreva, who is also a former Foreign Minister, said at a press conference. Mitreva added that Gruevski’s statement meant that the Prime Minister could accept a change of Macedonia’s constitutional name if it was demanded “in a milder way”. According to Mitreva, the Prime Minister offered a surrender of the state and the Macedonian people when he had compared the country as a mouse driven into the corner.
