Citizens face terrifying impoverishment and falling standards. Daily costs are 4 times higher than those in the European Union. In a short time, inflation ate a third of salaries, and the new VAT increases from 5 to 10% on basic food products will hit the pocket even more. That’s why citizens are increasingly giving up on buying something that they used to buy, or they only buy by the piece, instead of by the kilo, VMRO-DPMNE said in a press release on Wednesday.
“Medicines, vitamins, baby food, canned goods, beets, flour, tea, cottage cheese,, etc., became more expensive to cover the budget hole, just because SDS and DUI consider it a luxury. The wrong policies and greed of this government have skinned the people and brought life in installments. It is no wonder that the projections are that by the end of the year about 600 thousand citizens will live in poverty, and of them 80 thousand with only 60 Macedonian denars a day”, said the largest opposition party.
