North Macedonia's newly elected president Stevo Pendarovski signed 21 bills that his processor had been refusing to sign into law on May 21.
Pendarovski, the candidate of the governing Social Democrats, was elected president in the second round of the presidential vote held on May 5, and he was sworn in on May 12.
His conservative predecessor Gjorge Ivanov refused to sign the bills as he opposes the change of the name of the country, previously known as Macedonia, to North Macedonia following an agreement with Greece.
The deal was strongly contested by the main opposition party, VMRO-DPMNE which backed Ivanov as president.
The bills that were signed into law include ones on the financial support of investments and reforms to the security services.
Pendarovski is a strong supporter on the name deal with Greece, which opens the way for the country to become part of Nato and the EU.
