National Assembly Deputy Chair Christian Vigenin opened and closed the plenary session on Wednesday after MPs failed to adopt an agenda for the work of Parliament in the two plenary days before Easter.

In the first vote, the proposed agenda was rejected by 86 votes against to 8 in favour, with 103 abstentions, and in the
re-vote, the agenda was rejected by 79 votes against to 6 in favour, with 123 abstentions.

Vigenin commented that this is the first time such a thing has happened in the National Assembly, after which he closed the
meeting and convened the council of the National Assembly Chair and deputy chairs. He explained that the National Assembly Chair can convene a new session at any time.

The draft agenda included the second reading of changes in the Election Code. Representatives of VMRO party are holding a
protest against the changes next to the National Assembly building. BTA
