“In the EC Report, the opposition is rated worse than the Government because of the blockades in the Parliament. If you look at all the areas in the latest report of the European Commission, the Republic of North Macedonia has made progress during the last year and it is additionally and extremely important that it is noted that the country has started negotiations with the European Union,” pointed out Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski. Answering a journalist’s question at joint press conference with the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Economy Ljupco Nikolovski indicated that this is the first EC Report in the history of reports where the opposition is rated worse than the Government. “It is because of the blockades in the Parliament, and the dysfunction is not caused by the Government, but by the opposition. It is noted in the report itself,” says Kovacevski.
