In October 2019, due to opposition from France and other countries, the process of negotiations on the EU’s accession to North Macedonia and the European Union was frustrated. North Macedonia Prime Minister Zaev resigned as prime minister, thus creating conditions for the early holding of parliamentary elections in April. However, affected by the new crown epidemic, the parliamentary elections originally scheduled for April 12 were forced to be postponed. Subsequently, the political parties in North Macedonia reached an agreement and decided to hold parliamentary elections on July 15.
