Several thousand people protested in Skopje against an agreement that would ensure the wider use of the Albanian language in the ethnically divided state.Last Thursday, the leader of the Social Democrats, Zoran Zaev, said he expected to be able to form a government in March after he had secured support from ethnic Albanian parties in the 120-seat parliament.In a snap vote in December, VMRO-DPMNE won 51 seats to the Social Democrats' 49, and neither was able to form the government without parties representing ethnic Albanians who make up one third of the population.Albanian is currently an official language only in municipalities where Albanians account for more than 20 percent of the population.
