An elementary school principal, appointed by SDSM, became internet famous when she kept badgering a Facebook astrologist to tell her whether she will keep her position for another term.

Matilda Bajkova is head of the “Avram Pisevski” elementary school in Bardovci, just north of Skopje. Bajkova logged on to the video channel of Serbian Facebook astrologist Mirjana Mirkovic and sent messages with her birthday and the question “Please respond, will I get a second term?”

The superstitious principal was named “educator of the year” in 2017.
