On September 8, 1991, when the disintegration of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was clear, a nation-wide referendum was held in the Republic of Macedonia: out of the 1,074,855 citizens who went to the polls, 1,021,981 (68.32 percent) of the total number of registered voters went to the polls to consider forming an independent, sovereign and autonomous Republic of Macedonia - an d95.08 percent voted "Aye!"

On November 17 of that same year, the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia passed the Constitution of the Republic, constituting Macedonia as a sovereign, independent, civil and democratic state. Looking back, the roots of the Republic of Macedonia can be seen in the Republic of Krushevo and the ASNOM conference; and today's sovereign Republic of Macedonia was constituted as a national state of the Macedonian people, while ensuring the full civil equality of all nationalities living therein.
