Xhaferi: The law on Albanian language can come into force even without the signing the President Ivanov

 The law on the use of languages continues to remain a current topic in Macedonia, but it is not known when and in what way will be published in the Official Gazette, to continue to be implemented by the country's institutions.

With this law it is foreseen that in all Macedonian state authorities, in addition to the Macedonian language and its writing, the official language is also the language spoken by 20 percent of the citizens of Macedonia, which in this case is the Albanian language.

The law in question was voted in Parliament again in May, as it was not previously decreed by the president of the state, Gjorge Ivanov, who even after the vote again continues to reject his decree because he believes that it is unconstitutional.

Talking about the Law on the Use of the Languages, the Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi, in an interview with the Turkish news agency, Anadolu Agency (AA) says the system of a parliamentary democracy foresees alternative options for ways out of this blockade of law .

As Xhaferi says, "The constitution of the country sanctions the possibility that the head of state for certain draft laws, which are voted in Parliament, have the right to veto certain issues, but according to him, it does not imply that the president has an absolute veto."

He reminds that the constitution clarifies that in the revote, upon the return of the law by the head of state, the latter is obliged to sign the decree.

The head of state and the Speaker of the Parliament are the two persons decreeing the act for the promulgation of the laws, but according to Xhaferi, "Parliament has legislative powers and according to the constitutional logic and parliamentary democracy the will of the Parliament can not violate any other institution without taking consider the potential competences in this regard."

He stresses that the law can be addressed to the Official Gazette even without the signing of the head of state, in this case without the signing of President Ivanov.

"For the fact that the head of state has only the veto power for a certain time, this means that the head of state with his decisions can not affect the work of the Parliament and in this regard I think that the way out is that the law without the signing of the head of state should be addressed to the Official Gazette, so that it issues the law for the constitutional institutions to gain the competencies against the dilemmas that the head of state has over the law." said Xhaferi.
