Economy Minister Kreshnik Bekteshi responded late on Friday to the claim by VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski that a new parliamentary majority has been formed.

We will see how things will go, they should be voted in the Parliament if they have the numbers. We said that if we look at the numbers, it is in our personal interest to go to the polls because we would currently get 18 MPs. But at the moment the country needs stability, some major things need to be done, such as the dispute with Bulgaria, to continue the European path and DUI will not make any concessions from the European integration of our country, said Bekteshi.
