Statement by High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini and Commissioner Johannes Hahn on the election of new government of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
We welcome the vote for the new government led by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev. The European Union is ready to support the work that the new government, as well as the opposition, will do to constructively implement all parts of the Przino agreement and the Urgent Reform Priorities.
We expect all parliamentary parties to put their divisions aside now and work jointly on delivering, from the outset, on a common reform agenda that would benefit the country in its entirety.
This is also essential to bring the country back on its European integration path, a process that the citizens clearly want and deserve.
