Zaev speaks for me, but also for himself, MP Artan Grubi responded to Prime Minister Zoran Zaev’s remark that politicians can sometime say “stupid things”.

The prime minister’s statement obviously refers to him because he speaks for himself. I find it to be a moment of self-reflection and of frequent self-criticism that is often followed by an apology. Personally, I think it is a virtue of self-reflection and self-criticism, says Grubi.
