Velo Markovski to Run as Independent Candidate in Presidential Election

VMRO-DPMNE member Velo Markovski will run as an independent candidate in the presidential election. However, he expects support from his party.

At a press-conference on Thursday, he said an independent candidate supported by the people was a good chance for unification and functioning of the country. The procedure to collect 10,000 signatures will start, according to the law, after the elections are scheduled.

Markovski hasn’t talked to party leader Hristijan Mickoski about him being part of the race. However, according to his information, he was on the party’s lists to measure ratings of potential candidates.

“I think it’s not OK to have presidential candidates that the people didn’t have a chance to get to know,” Markovski noted.
