No deal on mode of election of Macedonia's public prosecutor

Today's meeting between the governing and the opposition parties dedicated to working out a deal on manner public prosecutor's election wrapped up with no agreement today.

After the meeting, whose follow-up is scheduled for Wednesday, PM Nikola Gruevski said that although certain progress has been made, no agreement was reached because of the opposition's stances.

Opposition SDSM's president Radmila Sekerinska pledged to support the manner of election providing for parliamentary vote upon positive opinion of the public prosecutors' council, but not upon nomination of the government.

There are discordances also on the government's proposal for setting up a special prosecution office for organized crime.

The series of meetings aimed at reaching an agreement on judiciary reforms, which are attended by the parties represented in the Macedonian parliament, commenced last week.
