Macedonian Parliament to Call for Early Elections

Trajko Veljanovski said Monday he hopes lawmakers from the governing coalition and the leftist opposition will sign a motion to dissolve parliament, AP reported.

Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, whose coalition has a strong legislative majority, plans to call elections for June 5, following opposition protests over the arrest of a prominent private TV station owner. Gruevski's mandate expires in June 2012.

Opposition lawmakers walked out of parliament in January demanding early elections after the owner of pro-opposition A1 TV was jailed and it bank accounts were frozen in a tax fraud investigation.
