Macedonian parties agree on parliamentary committee

Representatives of the ruling party and the opposition agreed Monday (July 19th) to form an inquiry committee that will investigate an incident in parliament on July 1st. The committee will be chaired by Hajrula Misini of the Democratic Union for Integration and will be composed of two representatives of the ruling VMRO-DPMNE, one representative of the opposition Social Democratic Alliance of Macedonia (SDSM) and one member of the New Social Democratic Party. The agreement follows days of tension between the opposition and the ruling majority. It began when the SDSM accused police of spying on their activities after a police agent tried to record their conversation with a group of disgruntled workers at the beginning of the month.
