Macedonia is approaching the final phase of black and shameful scenario, largely orchestrated by Zoran Zaev and SDSM, to change the name of the country, the identity, culture and history, VMRO-DPMNE says in a press release Thursday.
The opposition party blames Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and the Social Democrats (SDSM) of selling out national and state interests, breaching the Constitution, the laws and the will of the Macedonian citizens.
“Zoran Zaev and SDSM appear determined to destroy everything Macedonian. To this end, they resorted to threats and blackmails on lawmakers and their families to push the Republic of Macedonia to the closing stage of constitutional change in a bid to change the country’s constitutional name,” the opposition party says.
“Republic of North Macedonia is probably Zaev’s republic. For VMRO-DPMNE, it will always remain Republic of Macedonia – the name the majority of citizens had voted for in 8 September 1991 referendum,” VMRO-DPMNE says in a press release.
SDSM: Mickoski can’t stop bragging about landslide victory
Hristijan Mickoski’s coalition only changes its name, however, nothing essentially changes. It is a coalition for reinstatement of the regime, crime and isolation, the ruling Social Democrats said in a press release Tuesday.
“Mickoski and VMRO-DPMNE can’t offer anything but blockades and destruction. They were the only ones working against the EU and NATO, the only ones rejoicing over the historic mistake made in Brussels last week,” SDSM said.
“Fearing about the likely defeat in the April 12 elections, Mickoski brags to the people about alleged opinion polls and alleged advantage, but in reality, all relevant surveys show strong approval for SDSM-led coalition.”
The party says the SDSM-led coalition approval ratings are climbing regardless of election timing.
“Mickoski used to brag about an alleged landslide victory in the previous elections but the citizens had defeated his destructive matrix. He suffered a defeat in the referendum, the presidential elections and runoff in Ohrid and Novo Selo. And he is facing a crushing defeat on April 12,” the ruling party said.
Zaev: We remain committed to Euro-Atlantic integration
Prime Minister Zoran Zaev in a phone call with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg exchanged views on the EU’s decision to delay the opening of accession talks, the government said in a press release Monday.
“PM Zaev told Secretary General Stoltenberg the citizens are disappointed and frustrated following the EU’s historic mistake not to greenlight the long-awaited opening of accession negotiations notwithstanding the fact that the Republic of North Macedonia has delivered its obligations.”
“This should not and will not have a negative impact on achieving the country’s two major strategic goals – the EU membership, implementation of reforms and European values in all our institutions,” the prime minister said in telephone conversation with NATO chief.
Zaev reassured Stoltenberg that North Macedonia remains fully committed to wrapping up the process of integration into the Euro-Atlantic community, and becoming the Alliance’s 30th member.
Zaev wins backing of coalition allies for snap polls’ date
The Prime Minister and Social Democrats’ leader Zoran Zaev announced on Monday that all parties of the SDSM-led coalition, except for the ethnic-Albanian allies, attended consultations Sunday night after the meeting of political leaders held at the presidential villa beforehand.
The topic of consultations was the timing for early snap elections agreed by the major political parties.
“Our intention is to reaffirm certain values. This coalition remains 100% committed to the country’s Euro-Atlantic path. The demotivation by one member-state of the EU will not discourage us from continuing that path. We believe in the European values, we believe that the people of all ethnic communities deserve to become European people, like the people of modern Western European countries sticking up for the rule of law, universal freedoms, modern education, good healthcare, positive culture.. reflecting the multiethnic composition of the state,” PM Zaev said.
