According to VMRO-DPMNE leader, Hristijan Mickoski, the members of the SDSM-led ruling structure are responsible for corruption and crime. As he wrote on his official Facebook page on Sunday, their only agenda is to hold public office in order to “steal and get rich on the people’s backs”. The previous day, PM Zoran Zaev, in the capacity of SDSM leader, had participated in a tribune with citizens in Prilep. In his speech, he said that the VMRO-DPMNE leader was the only one who was happy with French President Emmanuel Macron’s blockade for Macedonia’s road to negotiations with the European Union. As the SDSM leader added, Mickoski is wrong if he thinks that the developments related to the date will result in VMRO-DPMNE winning the elections.
