Let Xn be an irreducible aperiodic recurrent Markov chain with countable state space I and with the mean recurrence times having second moments. There is proved a global central limit theorem for the properly normalized sojourn times. More precisely, if t(n)i=Σnk=1 íi(Xk), then the probability measures induced by {t(n)i/√n−√nπi}iεI(πi being the ergotic distribution) on the Hilbert-space of square summable I-sequences converge weakly in this space to a Gaussian measure determined by a certain weak potential operator.
