North Macedonia’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev (pictured) resigned on Sunday (31 October) after his party lost the second round of mayoral elections in several towns in the country, including the capital Skopje, sumulat si Fatos Bytyci, Reuters.

“I take responsibility for these developments. I resign from the post of prime minister and party president,” Zaev, whose Social Democrats are leading the ruling coalition, said in a press conference broadcast by local media.

Sinabi ni Zaev na hindi na kailangan ng maagang halalan. Ayon sa batas ang koalisyon ay maaaring sumang-ayon sa isa pang kandidato para sa punong ministro at bumuo ng gobyerno nang walang bagong boto.

Ang pinuno ng partidong nasyonalistang oposisyon na VMRO-DPMNE, si Hristijan Mickoski, ay nanawagan para sa isang snap election.

Last year in a parliamentary vote a party alliance led by the Zaev’s Social Democrats squeaked to a narrow victory ahead of VMRO-DPMNE.

Zaev had led the government of the former Yugoslav republic since 2017 and put the country on a path toward EU membership by agreeing to add “North” to its name.

That resolved a decades-old stand-off with Greece, which had viewed the name Macedonia as a claim on its province of the same name, and had blocked its neighbour’s entry into both the EU and NATO. Newly renamed North Macedonia joined NATO last year.

Ang EU ay hindi pa nagbibigay ng berdeng ilaw para sa mga negosasyon.

Florian Bieber, a Balkans expert at the University of Graz, wrote on Twitter that Zaev’s party’s defeat in the mayoral elections “was in part self-inflicted (bad campaign, stagnating reforms) and due to failure of EU to deliver.”

“No clear successor & will a new PM have momentum to re-start serious reforms?” he wrote.
