VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski met Wednesday with Derek Mitchell, President of the National Democratic Institute (NDI). On this occasion the interlocutors referred to the excellent cooperation between VMRO-DPMNE and NDI and agreed that it should continue with the accelerated dynamics.

Mickoski briefed Mitchell on VMRO-DPMNE’s commitment to the Euro-Atlantic agenda of the Republic of Macedonia as a long-term strategic interest of our country, especially emphasizing the role of the United States as a strategic partner in those processes. He expressed concern over the stagnation of the plan, which is primarily due to the government’s inability and failure to deliver real results, the main opposition party informed.

The President of VMRO-DPMNE also referred to the lack of capability of the government to deal with corruption and to implement the necessary reforms. He also pointed out that the government has no democratic capacity and abuses state institutions for its own interests, and that besides corruption, there is growing nepotism, controversial tenders and other illegal activities.
