Pendarovski’s statement Popularized the Emigration Issue once Again

President Pendarovski’s statement that he would leave the country if he were not president once again popularized the emigration issue. “We owe the people and apology for not preventing the massive emigration,” stated President Pendarovski after the reactions came out on his previous declaration that he too would emigrate if he were not president. According to him, its normal that the youth seeks their fortune abroad when the state has neglected its own prosperity for three decades. He also admitted that the statement he gave in Novi Sad was careless. “The youth needs to be given security that their potential can be invested and developed domestically and that it will be valued,” stated Sociologist Ilija Aceski. Poverty, poor education and party employments are the main demotivation which push youths to think about their future outside of the country’s borders.
