MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 17th January, 2022) Members of North Macedonian Parliament late Sunday voted for a new coalition government, with Dimitar Kovacevski, leader of the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM), elected as a new prime minister, national media reported on Monday.
Kovacevski previously stated that the key objective of his government will be to achieve "higher and more sustainable economic growth."
Kovacevski, appointed as deputy minister of finance after the 2020 parliamentary elections, succeeded Zoran Zaev, who resigned as prime minister on December 13, following the SDSM party's defeat in municipal elections. The leadership of the party then passed to 47-year-old Kovacevski.
