VMRO-DPMNE’s ministerial posts should remain vacant until the party decides to vote for caretaker government, says Kovachevski


Macedonian Prime Minister and SDSM leader Dimitar Kovachevski told reporters on Friday the ministerial posts that belong by law to the opposition in the caretaker government should remain vacant until VMRO-DPMNE votes in favor of that government.

He called on the nominee for caretaker PM Talat Xhaferi to form a government in which the posts of the ministers and additional deputy-ministers will remain vacant until VMRO-DPMNE decides to support the caretaker government.

“Participating in a government means supporting that government. There is no experience or example in the world of a political party participating in a government without supporting that government. Therefore, I believe that VMRO-DPMNE, in accordance with the law, just like all other political parties that are called to have ministers in the caretaker government, should name its candidates and vote in favor of the caretaker government. If VMRO-DPMNE decides not to vote in favor of that government, then I think those posts should remain vacant,” said PM Kovachevski.
