VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski said that the largest opposition party is prepared to cooperate with ethnic Albanian parties “who are prepared to hold their word”. Mickoski added that there is no such trust with the DUI party.

I must give praise to the other opposition parties, especially the Alliance of Albanians and Alternative, who I think work very constructively with us in improving the Government proposals. It shows how a mature Government should act. In principle I like to talk with people who hold to their word. Unfortunately it’s not something we can see lately in the ruling DUI party, Mickoski said.

Alliance deputy leader Arben Taravari recently announced a coalition with VMRO if SDSM and DUI declare a pre-election coalition for the municipal elections that should take place in a year.
