Alternative Expresses Desire to Join Government, but Not Unconditionally

The central presidency has authorized party leader Gashi to lead negotiations on an alternative to being part of the next government. Party spokesman said after the central presidency that they were ready to be part of the ruling majority but that they would negotiate with SDSM and DUI to see if they were ready to relinquish some of their positions and reduce their political influence at the expense of what Alternative would get some positions from the government. Asked whether DUI is ready to relinquish part of its power as one of the key demands of Alternative, Artan Grubi was without a specific answer, but only briefly said that he was ready to cooperate with all democratic forces at Parliament that stand for Euro-Atlantic North Macedonia.
