Ruling Albanian party threatens with parliamentary boycott
The Democratic Union for Integration (DUI) is straining the rhetoric towards its coalitional partner in the FYROM government VMRO-DPMNE, the "Dnevnik" daily reports.
DUI made it clear that it will block the adoption of the amendments to the Constitution unless its request for decisions at the Constitutional Court to be passed under Badinter principle is accepted.
After this statement of party’s leader Ali Ahmeti, on Tuesday DUI MPs left the Committee on Political System, as the materials for the sitting have not been translated in Albanian.
VMRO-DPMNE refused to comment on Ahmeti’s threats. Party’s chairperson Trajko Veljanoski declared he does not believe that DUI members will really block the work of the parliament.
