Macedonia Launches Preparations for Name Referendum

Macedonia has started working on preparations for the forthcoming plebiscite on its name agreement with Greece, a historic opportunity for the country to unblock its EU and NATO accession bids.

If preparations run to schedule, the earliest possible date for the crucial referendum on Macedonia’s name will be September 16, or maybe September 23, a well-informed source from the main ruling Social Democrats told BIRN on condition of anonymity.

“We would naturally push for a date as early as possible so that [if the referendum approves the name agreement] parliament will have enough time to implement the agreement by the end of the year as planned,” the source said.

Political parties must first appoint new members to the State Electoral Commission which will hold the referendum in autumn.

The parties will then need to settle on the exact referendum question and agree the exact date.

Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev told media on Tuesday that he expects this to happen soon.

Zaev said that the exact details about the referendum will be agreed after the July 11-12 NATO summit, at which the country expects to get an invitation to join the alliance.

“Immediately after this we will open the debate, we will probably determine the referendum date, the referendum question and the type of the referendum [consultative or binding],” Zaev said.

Zaev's party also said that no matter the type of plebiscite, its outcome will be respected by the government.

Answering the question about the possible referendum question, Zaev said that it will definitely address the deal with Greece, as well as the country's perspective for joining NATO and EU.
