At Tuesday’s session, the Government froze the price of white bread at MKD 33. A decision was also made to abolish the subsidized price of electricity for companies. The price of bread will be frozen until May 31 this year. With that, white and half-sliced bread, cut into pieces or whole, of 450 grams will cost 33 MKD, and under 450 grams up to 33 MKD.
As Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski said at a press conference, the decisions were made because the companies did not reduce the prices of basic products despite the anti-crisis measures.
“Market inspection checks showed that although they receive subsidized electricity, the prices did not decrease or decreased them insignificantly. I will not allow unjustified price increases. Therefore, at today’s session, we canceled this measure,” PM Kovachevski said.
