Bulgaria: Macedonia MPs Dissolve Parliament

Lawmakers in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (Macedonia) voted on Wednesday to dissolve Parliament.

The move will pave the way for snap parliamentary elections, which were previously due next year, as BalkanInsight has reported.

Macedonia's ruling coalition started splintering after it failed to agree on a presidential candidate.

The vote for president is scheduled for April, and local media claim that a parliamentary poll could coincide with its first round on April 13.

The speaker of parliament must now set a date for an early poll, which local media said would likely coincide with the second round of a presidential election on April 13.

This is the third time that Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, who has been in office since 2006, has challenged the opposition in an early general election.

Sandokan,

what is with you people that you think that calling someone a "Romanian" would be the offense you intended it to be? I am neither Romanian, nor frustrated, nor offended. So maybe you better get a life instead of posting pointless rubbish in this forum?! Ah ok - posting pointless rubbish in this forum IS the only life you have? In that case: my condolences, douche bag.

Grow a backbone. Just call it what it is: Macedonia (that wasn't so difficult to say).

Mat,

right you are. In novinite.bg the article even speaks plainly of "Македония". But you have to understand: Novinite's Greek advertising clients are a bit sensitive about the "correct" name of that country (or what they consider as "correct").

Bulgaria recognises the country as the Republic of Macedonia
