SKOPJE: Macedonia’s parliament will vote Monday on whether to ratify a deal to change the country’s name, in a bid to finally settle one of Europe’s longest running disputes.
Prime Minister Zoran Zaev faces an uphill battle to get the necessary votes to rename the Balkan state North Macedonia to end the row with Athens and open a path to EU and NATO membership.
He needs two-thirds of parliament’s MPs to amend the constitution and seal the deal.
