Fuele will warn of the consequences if Macedonian political crisis does not end. Fuele comes in a last ditch effort to end Macedonian crisis.
European Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fuele who is in Skopje, is expected to openly say what would be the consequences for the country if its feuding political leaders fail to reach a compromise and solve the ongoing political crisis. This is what unnamed diplomatic sources from Brussels have told the daily.
Fuele is in the country accompanied by European Parliament Rapporteur on Macedonia Richard Howitt and the former President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek and is to have talks with the government and the opposition leaders in an attempt to put an end to the crisis. Since a December incident in the parliament, the opposition is boycotting the parliament’s work and says it will not take part in the March local vote, demanding setting up early general elections.
European Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fuele is coming to Skopje in a last ditch attempt to end the political crisis in the country, the daily says. He previously said that he would visit Macedonia when the right conditions are met, so this gave wind to speculations that he arrives with a package containing some kind of possible solution.
However, unnamed political sources involved in the Brussels-Skopje talks say that he is coming empty handed, without a prior deal with the government and the opposition, and that this is his last attempt to try to influence the situation.
Balkan Insight has not verified the reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
