GRUEVSKI REJECTS RESIGN OFFER
Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski rejected the Transport & Communications Minister Mile Yanakieski’s offer to resign over Lake Ohrid tragedy.
Yanakieski filed his resignation in the aftermath of tour boat accident at Lake Ohrid Lake which left 15 Bulgarian tourists dead.
Based on boat sinking analysis, the recommendations and suggestions from VMRO-DPMNE’s parliamentary group and my own convictions, including the analysis on the cause of the accident, Prime Minister Gruevski has decided to let the Minister of Transport Mile Yanakieski keep his job, local media said.
The same sources quote opposition parties as saying that if an official steps down for ethical reasons, such a resignation cannot be reviewed but just confirmed.
