“It is not known what the future will be like when it comes to Zoran Zaev, but we have our own plans. VMRO-DPMNE is a pro-European and pro-NATO party. In 2000, the country’s Prime Minister was Ljubcho Georgievski, the first leader of VMRO-DPMNE – he signed the Stabilization and Association Agreement. In 2008, Gruevski was the second leader of VMRO-DPMNE, when Macedonia was supposed to become a full member of NATO in Bucharest along with Albania and Croatia, but then it was what it was. The first positive report on the start of negotiations is received by the VMRO-DPMNE-led Government. The Government led by VMRO-DPMNE was the one that got the visa liberalization for the citizens. So, when all these facts and arguments come together, then it can be concluded that VMRO-DPMNE is a pro-European and pro-NATO party,” said VMRO-DPMNE leader prof. Dr. Hristijan Mickoski in an interview for Serbia’s “Happy TV”.
Mickoski asked if the citizens in Macedonia lived better under Zoran Zaev’s rule, replying that they certainly don’t live better, unfortunately.
“Do we have a better education under Zaev? No. Do we have a better healthcare system? No. Do we have a better economy? No. Unfortunately, we are the worst in the region. Has the crime and corruption rate decreased in Macedonia? No, we are the worst in Europe. And all this when you add up who profited? The Zaev family, that rules in Macedonia today, and the citizens lost,” Mickoski said.
