The European Union refused to comment the so-called government program promoted by SDSM leader Zoran Zaev, without previously being granted the mandate by President Gjorge Ivanov.
Maja Kocijancic, spokesperson for the Enlargement Commissioner, urged for a government as soon as possible, so the institution would work on the urgent priorities and fulfillment of the Przino Agreement.
Apart from that, Brussels has called on officials to be more reserved and calm and not to draw moves that could possibly damage the inter-ethnic and good neighboring relations.
"We are calling on all political "actors", including the President, to respect the election result and to act in accordance with the Constitution. We ask of him to recognize the parliamentary majority and to continue with the democratic processes," Kocijancic said in a statement for Telegraf.mk.
She agreed that EU still stands on completing all points of the Przino Agreement.
"We will not speculate, or comment on any government agenda. We will, however, continue to insist on the implementation of the Przino Agreement and push for urgent reforms. All of this is of crucial significance to bring the country back on track for EU, it is what its residents want and need. Also, we call on everyone to restrain themselves from any activities and statements that would spark tension, or shake the inter-ethnic and good neighboring relations," Kocijancic concluded.
