Statements with a column for ethnicity will wait. The Constitutional Court postponed the application of the new Guidelines

After an almost two-hour hearing, the Constitutional Court with five votes "for" and two "against" adopted a temporary measure to postpone the application of the Ministry of Justice's Instruction, which foresees the insertion of a column for ethnicity in the extracts from the registers, and the procedure for evaluating the constitutionality of the Instruction to continue.

After this decision, Minister Krener Loga stated that the Constitutional Court "opened Pandora's box", because the constitutional deadline for publishing by-laws in the Official Gazette was not respected on many occasions.

Judges Naser Aidari and Fatmir Skender also voted against this decision of the Constitutional Court.

According to Minister Krener, Loga with a nationality count does not violate the laws, but is in accordance with the Law on Civil Registry, the Ministry of Justice said, sharing photos of the new statements.

From December 1, cheap electricity also in the period from 13:00 to 15:00.

From December 1, from 13:00 to 15:00, the cheap electricity tariff will return, announced today the head of the Energy Regulatory Commission, Marko Bislimoski.

- We are not introducing this tariff for political reasons, but because of the signal of the price of electricity on all exchanges - explained Bislimoski

Regarding the price of electricity that citizens will pay from July 1 to December 31 of this year, Bislimoski said that in the two lower blocks the price is decreasing, and in the two higher blocks it is increasing

- The total price in the first block decreases by 7.04 percent, in the second block it decreases by 4.09 percent, while in the third block the price increases by 2.54 percent, and in the fourth block it increases by 2.42 percent. The price in the cheap tariff remains the same. Households with average consumption will pay a lower price for energy and network charges by 4.26%, and from December, with the start of the daily cheap tariff, there will be a linear reduction of 5% in the bills - informs Bislimoski

Otherwise, from July 1, the VAT will be calculated at 18% instead of 10%.

The state of the abandoned children will have their birthday on January 1, and they will automatically receive an identity number

All children born on the territory of Macedonia who are abandoned, or whose biological parents do not know exactly what day and month they were born, will have a birthday on January 1. Thus, these children, mostly Roma on the street, will receive an identity number for the first time, part of the media reported.

The new law on birth records, passed in a quick procedure in the Parliament last week, further states that if the year of birth of those children is not known, then witnesses of the birth under full material and criminal responsibility will tell the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Justice for the year, and preferably for the exact date of birth.

If there is no testimony for such children, then a medical person will determine the age, the amendment to the Law provides. All options are covered only for these children to receive ID numbers for the first time. The biggest novelty is the added article 4a, which reads:

"Every child born on the territory of the Republic of North Macedonia has the right to be registered in the birth register immediately, and no later than 45 days from the day of the child's birth, regardless of the citizenship and personal status of his parents." The persons who applied for the public call and are registered in the Register of unregistered persons, who are about 700 in number, all Roma, after additional checks, will be registered by December 31, 2023 at the latest.
