Instead of resting, the Government should prepare in time for dealing with fires this season. Weather conditions should light the alarm in the government and instead of expensive cocktails behind high walls, they should start activating all available resources to protect the lives and property of citizens as well as natural resources, reads VMRO-DPMNE’s press release on Saturday.
The opposition party points out that last year was a total disaster.
“The Government allowed the fires to spread and threaten entire settlements. If it weren’t for the help from friendly countries, who knows how we would have passed. The Government’s incompetence cost a lot, burned hectares of forests, barns, houses, millions of damages and unfathomable consequences for nature,” reads the party’s press release.
