Address of the President of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia, Mr. Trajko Veljanoski, at the International Conference on Prevention and Suppression of Violence on the Football Stadiums
Violence during sport events is present in our country too. If we look at this from the legal point of view, the Republic of Macedonia has a good system of sanctions for violence during sport events. Namely, we have the so-called Lex Specialis, and that is the Law on Prevention of Violence and Indecent Behaviour during Sport Events, adopted in 2004. This matter is covered also with the Criminal Code, the Law on Misdemeanour, etc. You are the people that should inform us if this legislation needs to be amended. Certainly, as President of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia, I would like to convince you that, regardless of our political affiliation, we are prepared to adopt any proposals regarding this issue in the shortest period of time

Statement of the Presidency of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia on the occasion of the Decision on Visa Liberalization
Certainly, the credit for the visa liberalization and the recent Progress Report by the European Commission must go to you – the citizen of the Republic of Macedonia. It is a result of your overwhelming support for the realization of our strategic goal - the Euro- Atlantic Integration. At the same time, I would like to point out the role of the Assembly; both of the present composition, as well as the previous compositions that adopted the specific laws referring directly to the visa liberalization. I would also like to once again emphasize the work of every one sitting here in the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia, because the European Commission assessed our work as a big and qualitative step forward in the process of European Integration. I would like to express my gratitude to the MPs and to the Vice-Presidents of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia, since we are all working together and we are all responsible for the successful work and functioning of the Legislative House

ADDRESS AT THE OPENING OF THE PARLIAMENTARY LIBRARY
Every person in his nature strives for knowledge. Every family has in its home a corner that provides it with a particular warmth, shelves where favourite books are placed from which we have learnt new facts and which have broadened our spiritual horizons. Our parliamentary house has today attained exactly this type of first-rate space with a couple of corners that should become a driving force behind an enhanced research capacity of the Assembly.
