FYROM [***] PM To Resign In Bid To End Crisis

The prime minister of the small Balkan nation of FYROM [***] has said he will submit his resignation on January 15 to pave the way for an early parliamentary election under a deal to end months of political uncertainty.

Nikola Gruevski made the announcement in a televised address to the nation on January 14.

"Tomorrow, to the speaker of parliament, I will submit my resignation letter, effective 100 days before the official date of the election," said Gruevski.

Under the deal, a candidate from Gruevski's conservative VMRO-DPMNE party will head a caretaker government until the snap election on April 24.

Last July's deal with the country's social-democrat main opposition -- following mediation from the European Union and the United States -- called for Gruevski to resign 100 days before the polls.

FYROM [***] was plunged into crisis after allegations by the opposition that the government illegally wire-tapped 20,000 people, including police, judges, journalists and foreign diplomats. The government denies the claims.

EU enlargement commissioner Johannes Hahn is due in FYROM [***] on January 15 for talks with Gruevski and opposition leaders on implementing the agreement.
