The situation on the ground is too complicated and too serious. Parts of Macedonia are affected by serious fires, and the people are left to save themselves as they can. We have a complete failure of the system that does not work, VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski said on Saturday.
“This is not a press conference to judge or qualify for government immorality. I want to urge for full mobilization of everything that can be mobilized from institutions, resources and human potential and to jointly oppose the fire desolation. The government has once again shown in practice that Macedonia is not for all people. No one is looking for answers anymore, but for responsibility. I want to send an appeal for full mobilization of everything that can be mobilized from institutions, resources and human potential and to jointly battle the blazes. I urge the government institutions to do what they are paid for, to serve the people. The citizens are scared and under pressure. They feel left in the lurch,” Mickoski said.
The opposition leader said that the VMRO-DPMNE party has been fully mobilized for 4 days. All the leaderships of the municipal committees across the country are on the ground, helping the people, both with physical strength and with humanitarian actions. VMRO-DPMNE decided not to do daily PR, no marketing, because we wanted and want to sincerely help, he added.
Mickoski also called for the formation of a central crisis body, not what the state has now. I know that the Government will respond that there is already such a thing, but it is far below the average to deal with the crisis, he said, adding that the best experts must be hired and the best human potentials must be used.
