Politicians with Activities before Scheduling of Elections

On Tuesday, caretaker PM Talat Xhaferi, accompanied by Deputy PM Artan Grubi and several ministers, as well as by heads of public institutions, marked the start of the construction of the Tetovo ring road.

However, the contracts for construction and supervision had been signed in September and October. Asked about the timing of the activity, that is, the fact that it is taking place a day before the elections are scheduled, Xhaferi said there was nothing problematic.

“The ring road is a decade-long idea that matters to the people of Tetovo,” he said.

Other politicians too have been engaged in similar activities. Tuesday also saw SDSM leader and ex-PM Dimitar Kovacevski, together with ex-Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski, meet pensioners in Kumanovo.

Two days prior, VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski had visited Butel to, together with Mayor Darko Kostovski, conduct insight into a project concerning the Serava River.
