I will be your best friend and harshest critic, VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski told the 42 mayors elected from his party.
VMRO won a major victory in the local elections, gaining the key cities and urban centers in Skopje, as well as the majority of rural areas and small cities, which caused a serious crisis in Zaev’s Government.

The people need to see results and a different approach. The people must know that we stand by every word of every promise we made. We must not let them down, Mickoski said.
