The balancer system for employment in the state administration according to the percentage representation of ethnic groups should be abandoned immediately, the employment in the administration should be professional and highly educated people, said the opposition VMRO-DPMNE in a press release on Sunday.
“The current employment system of the administration has brought poor quality and lack of punctuality, which creates great unfairness and dysfunctionality. The anti-Macedonian SDSM and its coalition partner DUI use this system to hire party henchmen. On several occasions in recent months, the Macedonian public has witnessed how Macedonians declare themselves as Albanians just to get a job, abusing the balancer as an employment system,” VMRO-DPMNE points out.
The opposition party believes that progress and employment should be based on knowledge, quality and expertise, not on belonging to an ethnic community.
