Within the frameworks of their visit to Brussels, VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski and his party’s presidential candidate, Gordana Siljanovska Davkova, met on Wednesday with MEPs Eduard Kukan and Marijana Petir. As Mickoski said, the legal state and rule of law have been endangered in Macedonia, which is also faced with widespread corruption. “That has also been noted in relevant reports of international organisations,” the VMRO-DPMNE leader added. Siljanovska Davkova explained, according to VMRO-DPMNE’s press-release, her pledge for the rule of law and strong legal state that will have to guarantee human rights and freedoms. At the meetings with MEPs, Mickoski and Siljanovska Davkova also underlined the need for Macedonia to finally get a date for start of negotiations. “That will basically represent a benefit for all citizens in the Republic of Macedonia,” the VMRO-DPMNE leader said. Within the frameworks of the visit, which will continue on Thursday, Mickoski met also CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who expressed strong support for Siljanovska Davkova.
