Demonstrators took to the capital of Skopje chanting “Macedonia! Macedonia!” after Johannes Hahn, the EU commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy, reportedly rejected proposals to meet with nationalists.

Organisers of the protests claimed there were 42 rallies across the country, with one bitter group unravelling banners expressing their discontent with the EU chief along the route from the airport to the capital taken by Hahn.

Protestors from across the Balkans nation have taken place during the past 21 days, but organisers claimed 50,000 stormed the streets of Skopje on Tuesday.

Macedonia has ground to a political impasse following elections in December after the two largest parties did not scoop enough lawmakers to form a government.

The two largest parties would need to form a government with one from the ethnic Albanian minority, which is demanding Albanian be made the country’s second language.
