The opposition coalition submitted the no-confidence motion, with 61 signatures, on November 8, 2021. The Zaev regime quickly moved to target MPs in the opposition and ultimately abducted Rexhepi, who was prevented from appearing in the November 11 parliamentary session. He was unable to be located or reached, resulting in a frantic search, and amid calls to police and condemnation of the Zaev regime by Besa, VMRO-DPMNE, Levica and other parties in the opposition coalition. A cryptic message was later posted on Rexhepi's Facebook page, followed by a scripted video posted several hours later - all fueling concern for his well-being.

One day after approving the registration of the Krste Misirkov Organization, Greece abruptly reversed its decision and cancelled it, citing “problems with the legal representative of the NPO and his repeated issues with the Greek justice system”. The person they are referring to is Father Nikodim Tsarknias, who only has problems with the Greek justice system because they have made it illegal to declare oneself as Macedonian and to seek human and minority rights for Macedonians.
