VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski welcomed the move by Zoran Zaev to accept to debate him, after being called out by Mickoski twice.

It’s good that after two requests, the Prime Minister finally agreed to debate me. Obviously the Government’s results are not as they expected and they are feeling the heat. Unlike him, I have no pre-conditions in accepting the debate, Mickoski said.

Zaev said he will debate the opposition leader during his interview with the perennially pro-Government Kanal 5 television on Wednesday evening.
