VMRO-DPMNE and the coalition supported the price freeze because it was a very difficult moment for the citizens with a huge level of inflation. The previously frozen prices are now being unfrozen which means that the market will now dictate the price. I am afraid of possible consequences in terms of inflation.
That is why we in the Parliament will propose legal changes in two parts. The first part is the return of VAT for electricity to 5%, because Fatmir Bitici already announced that the 18% rate will be returned. We will also propose a reduction in the VAT rate for basic food products, said VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski during a visit to the Municipality of Konche on Thursday.
