Parties Preparing for Elections

VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski will be the holder of the list of candidates for the parliamentary elections in Election District 1.

“I was born in Skopje. I was raised here. I live in Karpos Municipality, which is part of Election District 1. It’s logical for it to be the District where I’d lead the list of VMRO-DPMNE and its coalition,” he said in an interview with Republika.

SDSM’s aware of its promise to DUI for an ethnic Albanian as PM of the caretaker cabinet in the 100-day period before the elections. Deputy PM for Economic Affairs Fatmir Bytyqi wouldn’t reject such an offer.

“If the consensus and momentum in society requires of me to serve as PM, I would accept the challenge,” he noted in an interview with Sloboden Pecat, adding that that was however not the reason why he was part of politics.

As he explained, his ambition is to serve citizens. Both parties are intensively thinking about the presidential race too.
