Mickoski congratulates Weber on his candidacy for the EU Commission President

VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski congratulated Manfred Weber on his election as EPP candidate for the presidency of the European Commission and chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament.

“On behalf of VMRO-DPMNE I would like to congratulate you on your selection as Spitzenkandidat of the European People’s Party. With you as the Spitzenkandidat I am confident that the EPP has chosen the ideal candidate to take the process of European integration forward in the coming years,” reads the note.

Mickoski said it was a pleasure to meet Weber in Helsinki and discuss topics that are of importance not only to their political family, but to the prosperity and stability of the entire European continent.

“I look forward to working together in the process of the integration of the Republic of Macedonia into the European Union – a process which our political party is deeply committed to.

The commitment to a strong, stable, secure and prosperous Europe has always been shared within the EPP. Together, we will abide by this commitment and prove, once again, that the foundations on which the European Union was built and developed on are truly the highest achievement of contemporary democracy. I wish you all the best, and, of course, a successful campaign!,” Mickoski writes in his note.
