WA Labour Party Conference resolution on Republic of Macedonia

The Australian Labour Party in Western Australia held its conference in Perth Western Australia and the following resolution was adopted as part of the party platform in Western Australia for the next 3 years. Conference notes the outstanding contribution the Macedonian community has made to West Australian and Australian society.

Their contribution has enriched our community and added to the diversity that Labor values absolutely.

They are an example of the more general contribution all migrants and refugees have made to Western Australia and Australia.

Conference notes Australia is one of the few countries in the world that still uses the term Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia in its relations with Macedonia and not with the other republics of what was once called Yugoslavia.

Conference notes that the Macedonian community takes offense at this and that as a matter of priority the Federal Government and any future Federal Labor Government should drop the prefix “former Yugoslav” and retain the words “Republic of Macedonia”. Conference also calls for a Federal Labor Government to consider the opening of an Australian Embassy in the nations’ capital to serve Australia’s interests in the wider region. The motion was supported by Jessica Stojkovski who is a Member of the Western Australian Parliament. The Macedonian Honorary Consul in Western Australia Zoran Coseski welcomed this resolution and said that it was a step in the right direction for social justice.
