Scores of protesters carrying lit candles chanted patriotic songs at a rally outside the home of Krsto Mukoski, a lawmaker who voted ‘yes’ to initiate the constitutional amendment process.
The United Macedonia party, a party standing behind series of protests against name change, had organized transport for demonstrators. They were bussed from Skopje and also from Vevcani, Mukoski’s birthplace.
Once the crowds arrived in front of his home, Mukoski was seen standing outside. Some entered into the house, while others played the traditional ring-dance with lit candles in their hands.
The protest is part of the ongoing campaign “Macedonia Blocks”. The crowds chanted “We have one name” urging him not to change the name of the country.
News protests are scheduled for Saturday outside homes of lawmakers Sasho Vasilevski and Ljuben Arnaudov, the two lawmakers who supported the launch of amendment process in the Parliament.
The three have been accused in the April 27 attack on Parliament.
