The transparency and the openness of the parliaments are important instruments in practicing democracy. The Parliaments themselves should take care of seizing the possibilities at disposal to be open to the public and the citizens. In particular, I can underline that the activities of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia are completely transparent, in the direction that, every plenary session, every committee meeting, public and scrutiny debate, as well as parliamentary activities are broadcasted at the Parliamentary TV Channel. In this context, it is extremely important that the parliamentary activities connected with the EU integrative processes attract the attention of the public and the citizens.

I am pleased and honored that this year, on the tracks of the beautiful Mavrovo, the traditional and jubilee 50th Mavrovo Memorial will take place, fulfilling the dreams and wished of the generations from 1957 that organized the first memorial- Nordic Skiing Contest. The contest is being held in the honor of the deceased 38 construction workers of the electrical system Mavrovo hydroelectric power station and 14 brave border guards who died in the avalanche in 1956., who are the true ganglion adorning the present. Let us remind ourselves of the young constructionists, who, at the “Mavrovo 48” action said: “we do not have enough machinery, but we have something else, we had heart and strong will to build our state, and that is stronger than any machine… ”

The Referendum of 8th September 1991, when over 95% of the citizens voted in favour of establishing sovereign and independent Macedonia, is our greatest modern victory. The referendum confirmed the idea, the aspirations and determination of all previous generations embedded in the two Ilindens - the creation of a sovereign and independent Republic of Macedonia as the state of the Macedonian people and all its citizens.

Ilinden is an unstoppable energy.
Ilinden is a symbol of the self-sacrifice for our motherland and a moving code of Macedonia.
Ilinden is the feast of the revolutionary wakening of the Macedonian nation.
It is a step to the ideal for freedom, a moment when the dreamers fulfill their dream.
When the small and occupied nation with a big heart, received something other nations dream of and still fight for.
Ilinden is the moment when the citizens of Macedonia decide to raise their voice for their state. With pride. With dignity.
Honestly and pugnaciously It is the light in the historic sea of events when we have taken what belongs to us.
Finally we had a state we could call our own!
Firmly taking the right of self-determination just like any other freethinking nation

Speaking of the position and the role of the parliament in this new and digital media, I have to underline that the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia has done many qualitative steps forward. The introduction of the E-Parliament provided an overall transparency of the whole legislative process.
The redesigned parliamentary website provides the citizens to contact their MPs or political groups and submit proposals, ideas and remarks. The Parliamentary TV Channel broadcasts all parliamentary sessions, scrutiny debates and meetings of the Assembly’s bodies and tends to start a new, interactive program which will include not only the MPs but all social entities, including the citizens.
