1Macedonian is designated as the primary official language. As of June 2002, any language spoken by at least 20% of the population is also an official language - at present, only Albanian fulfils this requirement - but it can only be used as prescribed by law (e.g., issuing official documents, when communicating with government offices, in municipal self-government) and always in addition to Macedonian in Cyrillic. In communities where over 20% of the population speak another language, that language can be used as a municipal official language along with Macedonian and any other official languages; such languages include Turkish, Serbian, and Romany.
