VMRO-DPMNE demanded a crisis and a state of emergency because we understood the seriousness of the pandemic which unfortunately is not over now and it is all the fault of SDSM and the old-new government, said the opposition’s spokesperson Dimche Arsovski, commenting on the accusation made by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev that they are destructive because they will not vote for the state of emergency.
“Although a state of emergency was introduced to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, that state of emergency was used only for personal interest and to fill the pockets of certain SDSM and government officials, including Zoran Zaev. During the biggest pandemic when everyone appealed, both the political parties and the opposition, VMRO-DPMNE and the citizens, but also all other companies, companies to work towards dealing with the economic and health crisis that followed, Zoran Zaev with his team, with his entourage, was spending money unproductively, citizens’ money. In that whole period, one billion euros were spent. Most of the tenders were in 4 eyes and what is most absurd, at a time when the economy and the citizens needed them, money was spent on the purchase of shrimp, seafood for SDSM officials in the government, including about half a million euros were distributed among non-governmental organizations in the pre-election period “, said Arsovski.
The state of emergency, as he said, was used for enrichment and personal interest of certain SDSM officials and the government instead of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
