SDSM†leader†Zoran Zaev†is expected to hand over the required†signatures†of majority†MPs†to President†Gjorge Ivanov†in order to get the†mandate†for formation of the new†government†at 2:00 †pm on Monday.

President Ivanov will take a decision in the coming days, said his Office.

According to announcements from†SDSM, Zaev will hand over†signatures†from 67†MPs†of†SDSM, DUI, Besa and Alliance of Albanians. Following consultations with party leaders and after VMRO≠-DPMNE leader Nikola Gruevski failed to form a†government, President Ivanov said on February 1 the party or coalition that proves it has secured a parliamentary majority would get the†mandate†over formation of the new government.

In addition, Ivanov said those who form the new†government†should incorporate two key priorities in their program: protection of Macedonia's interests, which means preserving and strengthening the unitary character of the state, and systemic reform after the crisis that will include the country's national security system.†
