Activities of Presidential Candidates Continue

The activities of the presidential candidates continued over the weekend.

SDSM-endorsed Stevo Pendarovski, who’s running for a second term, met citizens in Tetovo on Saturday, where he said VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski was afraid of his predecessor, Nikola Gruevski, returning.

“If Gruevski returns, it will be known who’s top dog there,” he stated, adding that Gruevski had actually made Mickoski VMRO-DPMNE leader.

On Saturday, VMRO-DPMNE candidate Gordana Siljanovska Davkova delivered an address in Butel, where she criticised the ruling structure, alleging its representatives were intentionally avoiding playing the full anthem.

“They have a serious problem. That’s why we will continue to sing our anthem,” she stressed, adding that when the current government would be changed, its members would have to listen to the anthem every day.

On Saturday, DUI’s candidate, Bujar Osmani, said that if he became President, he would resume the process started by him as Foreign Minister for adoption of a resolution by the U.S. Congress to confirm the Macedonian language and identity.

VLEN’s presidential candidate, Arben Taravari, said on Saturday that the EU, the US, and NATO were irreplaceable allies. The other candidates continued to meet citizens and present their programmes too.
