The small reduction fo the excise tax for fuel will still lead to an increase in Government revenue and will be a drain on our families, said Dafina Stojanoska from VMRO-DPMNE.

Even with the reduction of the excise tax from 18 to 10 percent, the budget will rake in more money than before. This shows you how much the Government cares for the citizens, Stojanoska said.

Macedonia has been facing a major energy crisis for months, and the situation greatly deteriorated with the war in Ukraine.
