President of Macedonia, Gjorge Ivanov will make a decision on the Law on the Use of Languages within the time limit provided by the Constitution.

Local media assert this fact, despite the reluctance of the presidency to give more details on the issue.

However, President Ivanov has openly shown his opposition regarding the decree.

During the year-end Speech held at the Assembly, Ivanov called the law a threat to the Macedonian language and the country's unity.

The president said that the law puts in question the interests of the Macedonian people.

The latter, though they have welcomed the decision, are skeptical regarding the likelihood of its implementation.

When asked by local media, citizens responded by saying that they are disappointed that the state has not kept any promises over the years nor has determined any laws for the rights of the Albanian population.

According to the Constitution, the president has 10 days to decree the law, which was approved with 69 votes by the Assembly two days ago.

In case of non-compliance with the deadline, or if President Ivanov does not respond positively to the decree, Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi stated that there are other mechanisms to ensure the adoption and of the law.

The law will acknowledge the Albanian language as an official language of Macedonia, advancing its use across all official institutions.
