BELGRADE, Serbia

North Macedonia’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev announced his resignation on Friday morning.

The country is receiving a technical, the so-called “caretaker”, government on Saturday, whose term will last until April 12, when early parliamentary elections are set to be held.

The caretaker government, as required by law, is formed 100 days before the election, and because of this deadline, Zaev had announced at the end of October that he would resign on January 3, 2020.

Zaev’s resignation should be accepted at the assembly for the process to start.
