The Macedonian Assembly elected Ljupco Svrgovski new state prosecutor yesterday afternoon. The ruling parties were able to secure a quorum of 61 parliamentarians to elect Svrgovski to this post. The parliamentary opposition walked out of the Assembly, with the explanation that the majority did not observe the procedure.

This post was vacant 100 days, following the dismissal of former Public Prosecutor Aleksandar Prcevski.
