VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski condemned the Government’s response in the aftermath of the Besa bus disaster as “disastrous”. Mickoski condemned the lack of any accountability in the institutions who were supposed to make sure that the bus involved in the disaster is safe.

Instead of accountability, we see that institutions are using media leaks to blame each other. Nobody wants to be held responsible for this disaster, just like with the Tetovo hospital fire that killed 14 people. It is all the more reason why we call for early general elections – we need to put an end to the illegitimate, criminal coalition between SDSM and DUI. We need to have people who are able to solve problems step up, Mickoski said during his visit to Bitola.
