‘Migrant Tsunami’: Macedonia Could Step Aside if Turkey Unleashes Refugees on EU

Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov remains under strong EU pressure to name opposition leader Zioran Zajev as the country’s next prime minister.

During the December 2016 snap parliamentary elections, the pro-sovereignty Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM) party of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevsky emerged the outright winner, but the ethnic Albanian DUI party then sided with Zoran Zaev and his Social Democratic Union of

Macedonia (SDSM) party, which promised to vote in favor of a “genocide lawsuit” against Serbia.

This is one of the points contained in the so-called “Tirana Platform” of ethnic Albanian parties in Macedonia and one of the conditions for Albanians to support Zaev to whom Macedonia’s president has refused to give a mandate to form a government.
While Zaev enjoys the support of NATO and the European Union, President Ivanov’s rejection of any foreign meddling in the country’s domestic affairs won him the support of Russia and Hungary.

“It is important to keep in mind the fact the Albanian-proposed measures to federalize Macedonia, redraw its architecture of state power and even of state symbols is fraught with undermining the country’s constitution and its ultimate breakup,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in an statement.

Meanwhile, Macedonia seems to have found a means of making the EU reconsider.
