Macedonia full of old communist laws, Opposition caravan traverses the country
Macedonia’s legal system is full of old non-applicable laws that have been a legacy from the time the country was part of Tito’s Socialist Federative Yugoslavia, the daily says. Twenty years after the independence, no one from the government or from the parliament has remembered to scrap these laws that use old socialist terminology and refer to long gone forms of organization.
The daily conveys a report from the caravan of the opposition Social Democrats who traverse the country the entire summer holding meetings in towns and introducing its candidates for mayors for the local elections that are to be held in March next year. The opposition kicked off to an early start of the campaign this summer, hoping that they can master enough support against the six year rule of the centre right Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski. If they will the local elections, they say they might ask for early general elections.
