Mickoski Expects Constructive Debate at Session to Elect New Cabinet

VMRO-DPMNE leader and PM-designate Hristijan Mickoski expects the parliamentary session to elect the new Government composition to see a constructive debate.

The ruling coalition comprising VMRO-DPMNE, VLEN, and ZNAM, he added, is united around four pillars: fighting corruption and crime, improving the standard of citizens, speeding up the EU integration process, and equal development. The plan is for the ruling structure to adhere to those four pillars, Mickoski stressed on Thursday.

Regarding the issue of deputy ministers, Mickoski said the coalition led by VMRO-DPMNE, Your Macedonia, would hold 11 or 12 such positions.

“It’s standard practice for the positions of deputy minister to be elected several weeks after the ministers cabinet is voted through,” he stressed.
