The VMRO-DPMNE party blamed the Zaev regime of forcing that Macedonia to pay five times more for its imported electricity than it would cost to produce it at home.

Zoran Zev drained the lakes we use for hydro energy and left REK Bitola without coal just as the winter heating season begins. Timely mining in REK Bitola would have ensured sufficient supplies but due to corrupt contracts we now face an energy collapse, VMRO-DPMNE said in a press release.
