MEP Kukan calls citizens of Macedonia to vote in Referendum

All citizens of Macedonia should come out and voice their opinion for the future of their country, says Eduard Kukan, member of the European People’s Party Group at the European Parliament. Voicing support for Skopje-Athens name deal, Kukan says that it is important for the people to exercise their voting right, not to boycott the referendum. “Please come out and vote,’ Kukan tells the citizens of Macedonia. There is no room for doubt about the realization of the country’s NATO membership and the launch of EU accession negotiations in case of successful referendum, as confirmed by the statements of numerous high EU, NATO officials,” Kukan says, adding that the EPP leadership is making attempts to persuade its sister party in Macedonia – now opposition VMRO-DPMNE – to call on its members, supporters to vote in the referendum.
