History of Macedonia Independence Day
The late 1980s and early 1990s brought major changes in the world, and particularly in Europe. With the fall of the Berlin Wall, the outlines of the new European history were created. The Cold War ended. Along with the Wall, under the sway of democratic forces, communist regimes that were dividing the Continent into two parts for half a century collapsed too. Macedonia also took part in those big steps towards acquiring democracy, starting the path towards an independent and sovereign state, outside the Yugoslav federation.
On 25 January 1991, the Macedonian Parliament adopted the Declaration of Independence of the Republic of Macedonia, followed by the decision to hold a referendum. On 6 August 1991, the Macedonian Parliament decided by acclamation to hold a referendum at which the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia had to declare themselves.
The referendum for an independent and sovereign Republic of Macedonia was organized on 8 September 1991. Out of 1,494,626 registered voters, 71.85% percent turned out, and 95.32% of them voted in favor of establishing an independent and sovereign state. Based on the results of the referendum that reflected the citizens’ desire for independence, the Assembly completed the process of independence of the Republic of Macedonia.
Since that day, 8 September is observed to commemorate the Independence of the Republic of Macedonia.
