 The Speaker of the Parliament of North Macedonia, Talat Xhaferi, was hospitalized to the Infectious Diseases Clinic in Skopje on Friday, but it has not been clarified whether it is a coronavirus infection. Mr. Xhaferi had experienced health problems during the last few days, his associates said.

Meanwhile, the new parliament that emerged after the July 15 elections should be gathered in early August and this session is convened by the outgoing speaker of parliament - Mr. Xhaferi.

According to the rules of procedure of the parliament, its chairman appoints the founding session of the new parliamentary composition twenty days after the results of the parliamentary elections are formalized. If he/she is not able to be present at the session, then it is chaired by the oldest MP. The first session also elects the new speaker of parliament.

Two other officials of the Democratic Union for Integration have announced that they have tested positive for COVID-19: Arbër Ademi, who is the current Minister of Education and member of the new parliament, and Kreshnik Bekteshi, Minister of Economy, who have been active during the election campaign during which coronavirus protection protocols and measures were not always implemented.
