Statement by the Social Democratic Party of Finland

The Social Democratic Party of Finland strongly condemns the violence that erupted in the Parliament in Skopje. What took place, did not follow the basic principles of parliamentary democracy and is not an acceptable way to influence democratic processes. We urge all parties to refrain from violence, respect the constitutional procedures, and resolve all issues in a peaceful manner. 

We want to express our support and solidarity to the elected parliament of Macedonia. We wish that democracy can run its course and the Parliament can resume its work with Talat Xaferi as the newly elected speaker.
