Macedonia 1980-1991

Within the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, the Socialist Republic of Macedonia was, together with the Kosovo autonomous region within the Republic of Serbia, the economically least developed region. In September 1990 the first multiparty elections were held; a new democratic constitution was adopted in November 1991, in an amendment of the earlier constitution in April 1991 the country was renamed into Republic of Macedonia (by dropping the word "Socialist"). In a referendum held in September 1991, the citizens of Macedonia opted for full independence.
