The parties
5.1
Are there any restrictions on who can be a party to an arbitration agreement?
 
Macedonia
The Arbitration Act imposes no express restrictions on who can be a party to an arbitration agreement. It is therefore understood that any party with legal and business capacity may also be a party to an arbitration agreement. This includes state organs and other state authorities (Article 1(7)).

5.3
Are there any provisions of law which deal with multi-party disputes?
 
Macedonia
The Arbitration Act is silent on the issue of multi-party disputes. However, unless the parties have agreed otherwise, given that tribunals are authorised to conduct the proceedings as they deem fit (Article 19(2)), it may be understood that this general authority also applies to multi-party proceedings. In conducting the proceedings in the way it deems fit, the tribunal is bound by the principle of party equality (Article 18).
