Hristijan Mickoski will attend the leaders’ meeting that Prime Minister Zoran Zaev announced only if the meeting is focused on discussing early parliamentary elections, said the largest opposition party VMRO DPMNE.

At Friday’s press conference, Zaev called Mickoski, Ahmeti and Sela for a leader’s meeting to discuss the Census, the SPO, and the Electoral Code.

We believe that the leaders’ meeting, first and foremost, should focus on early parliamentary elections. Regarding the day and the time and the location, it will be additionally analyzed in the party’s bodies and will be decided according to the president’s agenda. Then, everything else can be discussed, VMRO-DPMNE says.

The largest opposition party commented that Zaev’s address showed that he was running away from the elections by saying that they can discuss the Election model, but not under pressure for early parliamentary elections.

That shows that he is afraid, for the simple reason that the whole public is a witness to a major corruption, scandals, the most corrupt government at the moment, rigged contracts, personal provisions… “, VMRO-DPMNE says.
