Gruevski will now have 20 days to wrap up talks with his junior ethnic Albanian partner, the Democratic Union for Integration, DUI, after which his proposed government will be put to a vote in parliament.

Sources from both parties briefed that the sharing of ministerial seats between the two parties was a done deal, and that all that remained now was filling in the ministerial posts with actual candidates.
