On Monday, the Plenary of FYROM’s Parliament will be starting talks on the proposal from the government of Zoran Zaev regarding the beginning of procedures for a Constitutional amendment in the country. A majority of two thirds (80 out of the 120 MPs) is required for the procedure to move on to the next stages.

At the moment, the government needs to ensure the support of certain opposition MPs, for the required majority to be achieved. Zaev’s proposal is supported by the 72 MPs of the government majority, which means that he needs the consent of eight MPs from the opposition coalition. In case the parliamentary majority of two thirds is not achieved, the Parliament will be dissolved and early general elections will be called.
