On Wednesday, PM Zoran Zaev held a meeting with a National Democratic Institute (NDI) delegation led by the organisation’s president, Derek Mitchell. Implementing the complex reforms that are key to democracy and transparency of institutions, Macedonia is making progress and setting an example in the region, it was said at the meeting. The cooperation and support from NDI for Macedonia was positively assessed. According to the PM, that is of great help in terms of strengthening democratic processes in the country and represents big encouragement that the country is moving in the right direction, providing benefits and prosperity for all citizens. The NDI representatives said they were satisfied with progress and cooperation of public institutions, as well as projects to improve the work of Parliament and bring it closer to citizens. Defence Minister and Deputy PM Radmila Sekerinska, too, was part of the meeting. Mitchell also held a meeting in Parliament with the Club of Women MPs, as well as with the legislative home’s Vice PS and Sec Gen. He is optimistic about Macedonia’s road to Euro-Atlantic integrations.
