by Cristian Florescu

North Macedonia’s ruling Social Democrats have elected Dimitar Kovachevski as the new party leader and he is set to take over as prime minister if a coalition agreement remains intact, write ekathimerini.com

Kovachevski takes over as party leader from Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, who stepped down in the wake of a heavy defeat in mayoral and local government elections in late October. He is 47 years old and served as a deputy finance minister under Zaev. His landslide victory was confirmed following Sunday’s vote by the party’s members.

“We must restore unity in the party and build policies based on social democratic values,” Kovachevski told supporters. “A fair chance must be given to everyone with professional ability. We must open up and seek new staff from both at home and abroad to build a new mentality in the management of the party and (state) institutions,” he said.
