Macedonia's parliament endorses name deal once againEuropost
Macedonia's parliament on 5 July ratified a historic name deal with Greece for the second time in two weeks. Under Macedonia's constitution, President Gjorge Ivanov can no longer block the agreement under which the country would be renamed “North Macedonia”. MPs from the conservative opposition party did not vote. PM Zoran Zaev (pictured) told Greek TV that the referendum on the new name will be held on 23 or 30 September, or alternatively on 7 October.
