Zaev accepts Mickoski’s challenge to a TV debate


Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has accepted challenge from VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski to a television debate, government sources told MIA.

“One of the fundamental principles of the government is the openness. We constantly communicate with the public in an open manner as well as through debates and duels. So Prime Minister Zoran Zaev is ready for a television debate at any time with Hristijan Mickoski, because the basis of democracy is openness and readiness to face political opponents,” government spokesman Mile Bosnjakovski told MIA.

After a meeting of the Central Committee of the party on Tuesday, Mickoski challenged Zaev to a TV duel to discuss the name negotiations.
