Prime minister calls for snap elections in North Macedonia

North Macedonia's prime minister wants new elections after the EU passed on beginning membership talks. Now, the citizens should decide what's next for the Balkan state, he says.

The prime minister of North Macedonia, Zoran Zaev, called for early elections in a televised address on Saturday, Deutsche Welle reports.

The move is a reaction to an EU decision taken Friday not to begin formal talks with North Macedonia that would allow the state to join the bloc. This had been one of the key goals of Zaev's administration.

"This is what I'm proposing: organizing quick snap elections where you, citizens, will make a decision for the road we are going to take," he said in the address.
