For the working groups that SDS is forming to make sense, the party must say which of the two proposals of VMRO-DPMNE is acceptable to them, otherwise there is no need for further negotiations and a waste of time, said opposition MP and VMRO-DPMNE Executive Committee member Antonijo Milososki at a press conference on Saturday.
“The first proposal made by VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski was:
Transitional government without DUI, exit of DUI from all echelons, and constitutional changes that would come into force only on the day of Macedonia’s membership in the EU. And that country would receive as a guarantee that Bulgaria will also be actively interested in our inclusion in the EU, and that Macedonia will receive a certain certainty that there will be no further Bulgarian irrational blockades.
“The second proposal made by VMRO-DPMNE is early elections this fall, with three dates given that SDS should think about when they would be held in September or October, then guarantees from European institutions for the protection of national interests of Macedonia, by guaranteeing the centuries-old identity, but at the same time assurances will be given that the country will not have the irrational blockades from Bulgaria again every year. In addition, after the elections, the new Prime Minister of Macedonia will request an economic package for a better standard in the country from the European Commission, which will mean preparing both the economy and the citizens for competitiveness in the EU itself. And, for the sake of good neighborliness, we would ask Bulgaria to fulfill 3 rulings of the ECtHR in Strasbourg, which are already final, according to the choice of the official Sofia. This is how we will prove that when we talk about good neighborliness, we are not only talking about compromises or concessions on the part of Macedonia, but we are also talking about obligations that are internationally valid for Bulgaria as well,” Miloshoski said.
