Presidential elections: Campaign continues

Four days before the first round of the presidential elections, the candidates continued their activities. The candidate supported by the SDSM-led coalition, Stevo Pendarovski, paid a visit to Kratovo, Probistip and Karbinci. As he said in Probistip, if somebody wants to vote for the candidate supported by the VMRO-DPMNE-led coalition, Gordana SIljanovska Davkova, that will mean a third mandate for Ivanov. “The name is different, but the policies are the same. On 21 April and 5 May, we will not allow that to them. Instead, we will continue together forward, towards integration into the EU and NATO, where we belong,” he said. Pendarovski and Zoran Zaev were also part of a rally in Stip, where the SDSM leader criticised Siljanovska Davkova. The same day, the candidate supported by the VMRO-DPMNE-led coalition held rallies in Berovo and Delcevo. In Delcevo, she criticised the government over the issue of the language spoken by people in Northern Greece who are not Greeks. In that regard, she said Macedonians lived in that part. “We shouldn’t be ashamed of them,” the candidate said. The same day, Siljanovska Davkova had coffee with the candidate supported by the Alliance for Albanians and BESA, Blerim Reka,. VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski, too, visited several locations at which he called for support for Siljanovska Davkova. He also was part of the rally in Delcevo. Reka, too, continued to meet citizens on Wednesday within the frameworks of his campaign.
