Lawmakers on Friday voted 62-26 to fire Mizrahi, a member of the opposition VMRO-DPMNE party, for violating the Balkan country’s constitution in the wake of a 2018 name deal with Greece.
The party had opposed the Prespes accord. A government statement said that Mizrahi had violated the constitution, thus “jeopardizing the country’s Euro-Atlantic future.”
On Saturday, French President Emmanuel Macron said he would allow North Macedonia [sic] to begin talks on EU membership if the Commission gives them a positive review in March.
Macron had refused to approve the start of accession negotiations at a summit in October.
