Parliamentary committee Greenlights draft Law concerning Languages

11092017 2

The Parliament’s European Affairs Committee’s debate on the Draft Law concerning use of languages ended on Thursday. The majority gave a green light for the proposal. On the other hand, VMRO-DPMNE MPs fiercely reacted. In their view, the Draft Law is not in line with the Constitution. To express their protest, they didn’t vote. The text will be part of a plenary session on 13 September. “There is a Tirana platform. There will be an official use of two languages,” VMRO-DPMNE’s Ilija Dimovski stated. SDSM’s Tomislav Tuntev considers that the truth is being distorted. “The opposition’s attacks, with personal insults, are for political purposes,” he stated.
