Government spokesman Mile Bosnjakovski said that all the reported cases of nepotism in public hiring will be analyzed and that the Government will react if it is determined that SDSM and DUI party officials influenced the employment process.

Prime Minister Zoran Zaev was confronted by a journalist on Tuesday evening who read out a list of a dozen Government officials whose close relatives were recently hired in the public administration, against the principles of the merit system which should be followed during public hiring.

Analyses are being conducted and we will inform the public as soon as possible. The Prime Minister was clear – we will terminate all employments where we determine that protectionism was involved, Bosnjakovski said.
