Dismissing Boro Stojcev from the post of President of SDSM Novo Selo branch is a smoke screen for the true crimes and their perpetrators within the ranks of SDSM. This was VMRO-DPMNE’s reaction following SDSM’s announcement about the dismissal. They point out that Zaev could be heard asking for bribe of 200,000 euro and SDSM has become synonymous with crime. SDSM has said that in line with laws and regulations, those that have wronged will be held accountable. Stojcev is replaced with Igor Pertemov.
