3 Top Ministers Resign in Protest of Policies

November 23, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Three ministers resigned, jolting a broad-based coalition government that was created to back Macedonia's fragile peace process.

The resignations followed a decision Tuesday by a key Macedonian party--the Social Democrats--to leave the government, saying the threat of ethnic war no longer exists.

The party's three top officials--the foreign minister, the defense minister and Macedonia's deputy prime minister--all left to protest what they called Prime Minister Ljubco Georgievski's hard-line policies toward ethnic Albanians.
