Macedonian Parliament holds first session

The Macedonian parliament held its first session after the June 5 national poll, despite angry protestors surrounding the assembly building demanding accountability over the fatal police beating that happened on election day.

The June 5 elections confirmed the supremacy of the conservative VMRO DPMNE party of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, which again holds most seats in the parliament.

The party is now in the final stages of talks with its partner, the ethnic Albnian Democratic Union for Integration, DUI, to form a government, which are taking place to the backdrop of daily protests in Skopje following the death of a young man, beaten to death by police on election day.
