Seven Parties Joining VMRO-DPMNE-Led Election Coalition

Seven parties, some of which are now former coalition partners of SDSM, are joining the VMRO-DPMNE-led coalition for the elections.

They are Social Democratic Union, TMRO, Ljube Boskoski’s United for Macedonia, Party for Full Emancipation of Roma, Petar Bogojeski’s Macedonian Concept, Stojance Angelov’s Dignity, and Pavle Trajanov’s Democratic Union.

Trajanov said on Saturday that the negotiations were at the final stage, adding that the reasons for his party to enter the VMRO-DPMNE-led coalition were the state of affairs in the country and the closeness in terms of programme goals.

VMRO-DPMNE has said that another party too it is negotiating with will make a final decision in the coming days.
