 Macedonia and Greece's agreement on changing the name of Macedonia faced resistance in both countries. George Ivanov, President of Macedonia, said on 13 days that he would not sign the agreement; the Greek opposition party's New Democratic Party, on the 14 day, asked the parliament to hold a vote of distrust against the government.
[President Ma against]
Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announced on 12 days, respectively, that the two governments had reached an agreement through consultations. Macedonia would change the name of the constitution from "the Republic of Macedonia" to "the Republic of Macedonia" and to modify the Constitution for the new country to end the dispute over the 27 years of the two neighbours.
According to Tsipras, the name of the changing country will "clearly distinguish" Macedonia to Macedonian province of Greece and end the "implied" territorial unification of the existing constitution of Macedonia (for the Macedonian province of Greece). At the same time, Ma Fang "can not claim to be associated with the ancient Greek civilization of mahton in the future."
The agreement will first go through parliamentary vote in Macedonia, and if it is approved, it will receive a referendum. If there are "two passes" in Macedonia, the agreement will be accepted by Parliament in Greece.
The agreement was approved by the Macedonian parliament by more than 2/3 members. The opposition Democratic Party of Macedonia's internal revolutionary organization, the national unity Democratic Party, occupies 50 seats in the 120 seats of Parliament, and strongly opposes the change of the name agreement. The leader of the party said on the 13 day that it would use "all democratic and legal means" to oppose this "surrender agreement".
Ivanov, President of Macedonia, in a televised speech 13, said, "the country name agreement is the private agreement of prime minister Zoran Zaev and foreign minister Nicola Dimitrov".
"My position will not change," Ivanov said. "I won't give in to any pressure, coercion or threat. I won't support or sign this damaging agreement."
In accordance with the plans of the Malaysia and Greek governments, Greece will no longer oppose the accession of Macedonia to the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, if the agreement is passed by the Macedonian Parliament.
Ivanov said in his speech that Macedonia is seeking to join the European Union and NATO so that he can not sign this "bad agreement".
If the agreement is passed by parliament, Ivanov can exercise a veto power, so that the Parliament can vote on the agreement two times. If the agreement is approved by a referendum, the president has no right to veto it.
EU and NATO leaders issued a joint statement on 13 March to support the agreement between Maxi and Greece.
[the Greek political party is in trouble]
The amendment of the country's name agreement was also opposed in Greece. Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the leader of the new opposition Democratic Party, called on the 14 parliament to hold a vote of no confidence in the government.
Mitsotakis said he was "obliged" to stop the country's future "an agreement that is harmful to the interests of the state" and to challenge Prime Minister Tsipras.
The ruling coalition led by Qi Plath occupies 154 seats in the 300 seats of Parliament. However, the name agreement with Malaysia has led to internal differences within the government.
Panos Kamenos, the defense minister, previously said he opposed the agreement between Greece and Macedonia to make the name of the Malaysian country including Macedonian. It would vote against the vote in the parliament.
The independent Greek Party led by the canal is a small party in the ruling coalition, occupying 9 seats in Parliament.
Macedonia was independent of Yugoslavia in 1991. It was named "the Republic of Macedonia" by France. Greece believes that this country's name implies that Malaysia has sovereignty over the Republic of Macedonia. (Wu Baoshu) (special draft of Xinhua News Agency)
