Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has urged parliament to “confirm the will of the majority” after “more than 90 percent” of referendum voters agreed to change the country’s name to the Republic of North Macedonia.
However, Hristijan Mickovski, leader of Macedonia’s main opposition party, slammed what he called a “deeply unsuccessful referendum”, which was marred by a low turnout of 36.8 percent.
