VMRO-DPMNE will take part at the July 15 (Wednesday) elections and beat Zoran Zaev and SDSM together with the people, VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski wrote on Facebook.
His announcement came shortly after Zaev’s press conference in which the SDSM leader confirmed that the VMRO-DPMNE proposal had in fact been accepted due to the current health crisis of moving the July 5 date, which SDSM had long insisted on.
The two conditions we wanted have been accepted – protocols for protection of the people’s health and OSCE/ODIHR mission for protection of the people’s will, Mickoski said. The country is in an economic and health crisis, and elections are the only way out.
“Macedonia has suffered defeats in the economic, health and political fields over the past three years. It is time to put an end to this, it is time for a change, and Macedonia will come out stronger,” said Mickoski.
Earlier, the DUI party also announced that it had welcomed the consensus reached, confirming media reports that the foreign stakeholders had also contributed to the decision.
