Following many debates as to which party will be part of the governing coalition in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia afterthe early parliamentary elections of April 27, this issue has been clarified today.

After the meeting held this afternoon between the leader of VMRO-DPMNE, Nikola Gruevski and leader of Democratic Union for Integration (BDI), Ali Ahmeti, the coalition is said to continue.

Sources from both parties, which won the elections, informed on the meeting.

“The meeting discussed on the electoral process and both leaders praised the elections and democratic and free atmosphere. Ahmeti and Gruevski agreed on forming work groups which will hold talks for the formation of the new government”, states the joint press release distributed in the media.

In case an accord is reached, VMRO-DPMNE with 61 seats and BDI with 19 seats will have an absolute majority in the 123 seat parliament.

These two parties have governed the country since 2008.

Meanwhile, Macedonian opposition has announced its decision to give up on the mandate of MPs and not recognize the elections, accusing for electoral fraud by the party in power, VMRO-DPMNE. /ibna/
